~~~ Present......Tense ~~~

~ Present.....Tense ~


Love, sweet love,

Where did you go?

The night's draw long,

I miss you so.

You flew away,

No message sent me;

Turn this way,

The days seem empty.


Dear, best friend,

I talked to you,

Like no one else,

So honest, and true.

Don't fret your heart,

There'll be no rush,

I'm powerful enough,

For both of us.


Lean on me,

When you're not strong,

I'll carry you

As we move along.

Commitment, money,

And room for baby,

So take my hand,

Just don't say ' maybe '.


Day, by day,

We'll walk the stars,

To reach the love,

I know is ours.

' Amore ', came to you, today,

You'll wake one glorious,

Sunny May,

To realise, that

It looked your way,

'Tis then, we'll know, it's

Here to stay.


Let's step up,

To this golden ladder,

I know, there could be

Nothing sadder, than

Time, that simply,

Passed you by;

This day was made,

For you, and I,

Won't say ' goodbye ',

No need to lie, 'cos babe,

I'm gonna take you high.


Your kiss,

Tells all I need to know;

You're going to stay,

Or simply go;

Tenderly, for

Love's the law,

Just be my

Twenty-first century, squaw.

So brace yourself,

Now is the hour,

When two are one, or

Life turns sour.


You're looking fine,

It's such a crime,

Let's shout, ' l'chaim! ',

Don't end this rhyme.

So, feel these words,'till

Your heart tugs,

I'll be the ' Dr. ',

To your ' Ugs '.

      Obviously, this is adorably sweet and romantic! Beautiful, honestly... promises it sounds like to me! I really liked that first song in particular, though I was first caught off guard with it's beat considering the tone of the poem... but like I said... I really liked it.

      To think... I almost missed this; Ug!

      Yours Truly,

      The video is there to wake people up in case they fall asleep reading the poem lol! And I like Hayley Williams, so that's why it seems like a bit of a curveball, juxtaposed 'gainst the cadence of the verse.

      Don't worry - if you missed it, I wouldn't 'unfollow' you, as you seem to be concerned about in your latest Hubbette.

      Thanks for your wonderful comments;

      Yours Sincerely,

      Yes, she seems like a lovely little child... I could pinch her cheeks.

      No... not a concern my dear, simply my attempt at humor... some people found it humorous.

      No prob, bob!

      She's a talented singer, who also happens to be a Christian - doesn't do drugs, alcohol etc...all of the stuff that unfortunately seems to tag along with that world, and to me, that makes her a great role-model for other artists, aspiring singers, and for youth in general.

      Sounds like she'd be great for Justin Bieber, he's a heck of a role model as well... and what a cute little mug he's got!

      For some reason this came across, to me, as a lyrical poem. Was a song going through your head?

      Still debating whether or not to mold it into one, but I published it under the sub-heading of ' Lyrical Poetry '.

      Thanks for dropping by.

      Yours Sincerely,

      There is a big difference in the style of the first four stanzas and the last three.

      Traditional love poem with archaic hints in the first four switching to a modern feel and faster tempo in the last three.

      Both parts are very well written and are fused together well.

      My favourite was the first four stanzas which were really quite beautiful.
