From a Vision of Love

Updated on November 1, 2013

I see you
I know you
I must hold you close
I must tell you how I feel

I need you to believe in a man
One more time
As I need to believe in a woman
One last time

I want you
I want your life
I want to make love to you
Until the oceans recede from the shore

You have removed hesitation and caution from my life
We can no longer use distance as a safe harbor
What we choose to say at night masks our true feelings
As the longing of faraway lights reflects off our armor

We barely touch but cannot break away
Our fears are bold but are ready to obey

What we know is enough to plant a garden
What we desire is to care for it together
What we want are tree tops touching the sky
What we need is the will to live under its shelter

There is every reason to sail alone
But even a mariner must replenish his stores
And for a heart that sees the ocean as its own
There is another standing on the same lonely shores

You may never believe it can be true
And it may be that you are right
But what you must know now
Is that you are who I dream of in the night

      This is probably the most sincerest and most heartfelt poem that I have read of yours, Mark. It touched me deeply....

      Did it seriously take a pic of a woman in a bikini to make this spill out of you? Hmmm....

      Simply lovely, Mark, in every way! It makes me believe for you! It gives me joy for you!

      I especially like the 'tree tops touching the sky'! Gorgeous imagery, as is that beautiful woman.

      The pacing in this tribute of love is excellent. What a beautiful woman in that picture....a true inspiration for a love poem. Well done!
