My Midnight Sun

There are places in the world
Soaked in constant light
For days, weeks, or months without end:
The Land of the Midnight Sun
A time when sunset is sunrise.

Easily, my beloved, I can relate this back to you
Because when you’re by my side
I’ve never seen the night.

    You are a romantic’s romantic Benjamin! You keep your beloved recipient of these beautiful poems,eternally glowing. I love how you do that. Ahh… to be loved by a poet!!❤️

    • Sorry this is me Karima on my phone

    • Thanks so much, Karima! That’s all very lovely to hear from you. I appreciate you so much. And I agree: being loved by a poet/artist; that could be such a lovely thing! Not everyone gets that in their lifetime. ❤️

      • You are very welcome Benjamin and you are so a poet, I have yet to fall in love with another.(poet)..It hasn’t been my destiny…and yet, lucky those who receive the loving words of a poet who has fallen in love with them:) I love how you wear your heart on your sleeve……

      • I’m in the same boat as you. Never had anyone really write poems about me that I know of, but I’m sure it’s magical thing for those few who get to receive it and something to always remember. Thanks again!

  2. This poem brings out the fragrance of a hopelessly romantic soul, Ben 😊💖

    Yes, it is my sentiment exactly! To be loved in such a beautiful way, it is like living in Paradise.

    Thank you.


    • Yes, Joanna. I think that’s the kind of love we all wish and hope to find, and once you get it … we should try to keep it close. Thanks so much! “Like living in paradise”: good words!

    Ohh this is beautiful. Alaska’s nickname is the Land of the Midnight Sun (like Norway!!) so this makes the poem even more special to me because I identify.
