Show me love... A love poem

Source

Show me what is true

And how love can truly be

I want to trust in you

So please help me see


Show my heart the way

To open my locked door

To believe in the words you say

To give a little more


Source

Take my trembling hand

Wipe away my frightened tears

As I struggle to understand

My heart so full of fear


Take away the lonely nights

Filled with sorrow and pain

Show me loves hidden delights

I want to trust again


Lead me through the steps slow

As you teach me loves dance

Guide me in this love you know

As I take this new chance


Lead me out of the dark

Your hand firmly taking mine

As fear fades from my heart

And I finally lose track of time


Source

Show me how to love you

I want to learn the ways

Lead me in this dance so new

Till we find our own end of days

Great that the lover is asking to be guided; that leads to satisfaction for the other person. Beautiful lines!

Beautiful poem. Love is indeed like a tango. Beautiful to watch, but not that easy to dance. And it really takes two to tango -:)

Really touching, nighthag....

This is beautiful, and expresses so well the fear that can keep one from loving fully. Well done! :-)

loving fully and completely is sometimes a very scary thing indeed, but oh the rewards when you finally let yourself trust can be oh so worth the effort.

I am so glad that you enjoyed this love poem, thank you so much

Hey girl ! I am getting older and as I watch and console friends in the great mystery of "love " , I am always amazed at how we all fear rejection , In some ways I think that love is a cruel game imposed on us by our dreamworld ! LOL, seriously though , you write of it so well ! I think you about covered both sexes desires too !....Your buddy Ed

Love is indeed a mysterious and fickle dancer, and as we grow in this ever modern world our expectations seem to grow bigger and more demanding. nothing seems simple anymore, divorce is up, people "love" for shorter and shorter times. it seems to find a life partner is harder now then it ever was, yet we all yearn for the truth of the love, we all want to taste it and make it own, yet we have no real idea on our to let our hearts find the way

thank you for reading this poem of mine, its always a pleasure to get your take on my work :)

I have found this right before bed. How can I sleep with all your exciting thoughts of such passion and love running through my head. Such a wonderful feeling that runs so deep. I get in bed and snuggle holding my wife so tight off to dream as I think of each line caressing the next one. I am in sweet harmony with every thought. Thank you so much.
