Love Poem

Your touch on my lips
Sends chills through me
A caress so warm
Takes me places Iíve only dreamed
Loving you is simple and complete
For your eyes say everything

Missing you cuts so deeply
Into my soul of vulnerability
I canít stand being without you
Because your nearness brings such comfort
To a heart so shaken and dead
If but for a moment of tenderness

Your laughter and sigh
That momentary glance
If only you were willing
To take a chance
We would fly away
To parts unknown

I feel Iíve known you all my life
Yet, being without you
Cuts like a knife
A wound so magnificent
It spreads like a cancer
Of loneliness that only lovers understand

I know this journey wonít be easy
But traveling with you somehow
Eases the pain of separation
No regrets for two who share the same dream
Of being together if only for brief moments
Stolen away from time moving so quickly

Youíve invaded my essence
Without you, Iím nothing
If only I could bottle you up
And spread your gentleness
Throughout my being
I love you, sweetness, forever it seems

Just to let you know I miss someone too and am inspirated by this poem. Everything is to be gotten through and gone on with in our lives. Great poem.

Keith, I can tell this was written from the core of your soul. Yes, it hurts when you love someone so and can't be with them. The only thing we can do is hold onto the memories and expect to meet someone else to fill the void. Your mind penned this perfect to bring the reader heartfelt feelings. A great read!

Nice! I have a poem with the same title written yesterday; but it was about my Dad. I wrote it under my other ID May Lu.

Your poem is sweet and tender. Lovely write indeed!
