A Tribute to the One I Love

Updated on March 10, 2012
Source

Update 9 March 2012: I've shared this poem with Romantic Friday Writers Challenge No 33 I love You Because...

Click on the link above to check out other entries.

***

I love you because...

When you enter the room

My axis shifts then I know

You sense me inexplicably


When you look at me

My soul sparkles then I know

You observe me truthfully


When you listen to me

My rhyme resonates then I know

You learn me skilfully


When you touch me

My skin tingles then I know

You worship me generously


When you say those words

My heart soars then I know

You love me perfectly


When you read this

My true love then you’ll know

You rock my world eternally

      Hello Kiru.

      These are some tender and heartfelt sentiments...a true expression of love. If my wife said it to me like that, even I would go weak at the knees! Very nice and a surprise too.

      Dear Kiru,

      I discovered that I have a Hub account, but it is under my 'real' name Christina Wigren.

      Lovely poem! Beautiful. Fits the challenge perfectly. Hope the man in the poem appreciates it.

      Best wishes,

      Very nice. Love the last line about your world being rocked. I take it you're referring to that dapper chap in your photo -- or that's not you and it's a random picture from online. Either way, it's good to see how very active you've been lately. Happy new year!
