Refuge of Love – To My Wife


The perfect moment

is the one that I spend

with you.  Your touch

keeps still the moving

illusions of time.

I can hear the quiet

notes of life sing clear

as I find sweet refuge

in this graceful abode.

Hurricanes can devour

a form in great rage,

but nothing touches

the eyes that I dwell in,

A quaint cottage turned

into heaven’s kingdom,

so long as I remain open

to feel your essence

connecting with mine.

~ salvatore vionito

  1. This is truly beautiful.

    I am putting together a collection of poems from both women and men about Love, relationships and dating. The book is called 7 Shades of Love. I would love to include your poem.

    This poetry book is designed to compliment my self-help book Mr Wrong, “a humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually Mr Wrong and how to set out onto a positive path to Mr Right.” Check out my about page for more info.

    Please, if you are interested in contributing. Get in touch. For examples of my poems check out one I wrote here called Real Love. Also search for Real Love and Strong Women. Poems can be as long or short and in any format you wish.

    I look forward to hearing from you! If you are interested in getting involved, please inbox me or email me at
