Valentine's Day Poems - A Simple Love Song

A Simple Love Song


♥♥♥


I aint no expert in matters of love

There’s no help from heavens above

All I have are my words and dreams

May not be much, or so it seems


I do write songs straight from my heart

There's no science, it may not be art

All I have are my words and dreams

Sunshine, starlight and moon beams



When I see you my tongue gets tied

My feelings mix up and go for a ride

Got no lines that make me sound cool

I always mumble like a crazy fool



When you’re close I’m all a fluster

Not an ounce of courage I could muster

I’m all clumsy can’t coordinate

Will this race ever get past the gate


You dazzle me with the look in your eyes

That sweet smile of yours is ever so nice

That strand of hair falling just out of place

Why does it make my heart beat race



Emptiness when you walk away

Sleepless nights if I don’t see you all day

Is this what crazy love does to one

Heart wants to stay but my brain wants to run



Clichés there are plenty in love

It seems they’re all I have got now

Will my song ever find its way

To let you know what I’ve got to say



I aint no expert in matters of love

There’s no help from heavens above

All I have are my words and dreams

May not be much, or so it seems



I do write songs straight from my heart

There is no science, they may not be art

All I have are my words and dreams

Sunshine, starlight and moon beams

♥♥♥

Very loving and sweet. Sometimes 'simple' is best.

This is one of those times! Love It!!!!!!

The Joss Stone L-O-V-E song you've added, puts the cap on a lovely poem. Well done.

Voted up and awesome!

Ciao...Princess Prisca

I feel the beat, the heat, the music is sweet! Damn, Docmo, there you are up in the stars with a 99% score. You are a star. Magnifique!

@Ruby- I like that line too- wanted to capture the confusion of how it feels for the emotionally inarticulate male psyche during those baby steps in wooing a girl!

@drbj - glad you liked the video and the poem. That Nat King Cole number is very well rendered by Joss Stone , me thinks!

@Amy, I love it when you rap! ( I feel the heat, the beat and the music is sweet...) You know you do wonders to my creative self-esteem. oh you do! I am baffled by the 99% score too. C'est magnifique...as I never worked out how this system works!

The quality of Docmo is burnin' down the house. I suspect you never give less than 100% to anything you do. Revel in what you've earned. You got it baby!

This is too sweet and it's not mundane. It's got kick. I like that in a love poem...especially interesting to hear a gentlemen's take on the subject of amore. FIYAH!

Very, very nice and a touch of the romantic passion makes this a great way to say Happy Valetine's Day.
