My Tender Flower

Updated on June 5, 2012

My Darling

I Dreamed of us,

together we played

in the tall green grass,

where we once did lay...

 You gave me your love

so tenderly......

to happen again...

will it ever be ?

I hold you close...

now, only in my dreams

Why can't I make this

a reality....

 I can only stare

into your eyes...

from the picture I have....

It's my treasured prize.

My Tender Flower,

where do you grow ?

 To whom ...do you smile ?

For whom.... do your petals glow ?

Whose sun now doth shines....

upon your beautiful face ?

Who holds your tender heart

 in a treasured place ?

The same way I..

always will hold you so dear,

The way your words...

will always be near.

My Darling, I still love you so.

I just wrote you this... to let you know

Love you always,

Michael

      How wonderful Faith leads others to your beautiful poems Michael. We started out as friends and then seemed to drift apart, almost like your beautiful poem. But luckily I found my way back to your poems and enjoy each and every one.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      Lol Michael, I do not know about all of that, concerning all men on HP lol, but you can just speak for yourself dearest Michael. I am learning that true poets such as yourself are very passionate people and are not afraid to express such to others. You are so funny to instruct me to come to your profile and read once a day, being with my busy life and work schedule I do good to read and comment as I am able to in my free time which has not been too much lately. Your LOL is right ... LOL Well, ALL that I read here on HP helps me to relax from the stress of the day, as I do love to read not only poetry but all of those I follow's work. There are many amazing writers and friends here on HP who I respect as writers and love to really read their work too, so I must fit the time in and I do the best I can considering. LOL

      Thank you for your kindness,

      God bless,

      Faith Reaper

      Oh my goodness that hurts my heart for you not to be appreciated especially your God-given gifts but you know that is how it is with family, sadly. Well your gift does not go unappreciated here! Lol eell since I was on your profile page checking out that interesting new avatar you have, I thought I would treat myself and read something of yours I have not read before. Although I do work in a criminal investigative office, no I just love to read lovely writings to relieve the stress of real life's seriousness as a brief escape fom the weekly extreme serious issues I face daily during the work week. Peace and love, Faith Reaper

      Faith .. actually..my wife does not read my poetry .. she has no interest in it . you may not believe it but it is true. To have you give me compliments, is a warm feeling of appreciation that flows through my poetic heart.. peace and love is what I feel.. from the south across the land for me from you... my lovely friend .

      Are you investigating me ??

      just a thought ..!

      Love ya Faith ..
