POETRY: YOUR GIFT TO ME

Source


Your gift to me


From day one


You fixed this heart


That came undone


Your gift to me


Is your caring soul


Your reassurance


To not let me go


Your gift to me


Is your warm embrace


I see our love


Written on your face


Your gift to me


Was your hand


Your ability too


Always understand


Your gift to me


As we lay in bed


When you snuggle close


Head to head


Your gift to me


As I am asleep


You stay awake


To listen to me breathe


Your gift to me


A gift of true love


A smiling touch


As I almost gave up


Your gift to me


Is your tender heart


The fact you were


Here at the start


Your gift to me


Two babies of joy


One little girl


One little boy


Your gift to me


After all these years


Is every single second


That I have you here


If you haven't heard, well worth the time!

Love is good for something indeed. Unconditional love keeps us bound together. Living without Love in one's life is empty, sad and lonely. You are a romantic, so nice to read. Two people in love is heaven sent. Blessings and hugs from the Saddle. Beautiful scribe..bravo.

They are all of them right... you are a romantic. I had to smile when I read this

Your gift to me

As I am asleep

You stay awake

To listen to me breathe

I often wake to find my partner just watching me, there is just something special in this that makes you feel safe and loved.

I like the fact that you included your babies as gifts for they surely are.

You have a wonderful heart my friend and it shows with every single word you write.

Your gift is good

Your thoughts are sound

Your inspiration abounds

Your passion proud

You’re a grounded man

With gifts to give

A world in need of being

A better place

To love embrace

And win the right to hold the heart

That makes the time

To embrace your space

A thought that came to me reading this hub, knowing the meaning of those words that were an inspiration to love and living ........Ausseye
