Stay With Me, And I Will Believe

Updated on May 15, 2013
Source


The softness of your face

in love, is beautiful.

The love in your eyes

is so deep, it makes me weak.



Source


The love in your touch is

so gentle,

and your caress

is so sweet to me, I die.



Source



The love we share is

beyond all words, and

makes my heart sing.




Source



I long for your touch.

I hunger for your love.

I detest the time we are apart,

and live to be near you again.



Source



I love you.

Stay with me, and

I will believe!

      Levertis - you are so right. We should never take anything for granted. I know how lucky I am to have had a love like this. Not as long as I would have liked, but this goes down through all of eternity in my opinion. Thanks for your kind comments. Lynda

      Mekenzie - I thank you for your kind words. I believe Craig would have been a great writer had he pointed himself in that direction. And I think things are like this are meant to be shared. They have been sitting in memory box for years, but now that Craig has passed away, I feel others should enjoy too. Lynda

      Thank you sis for stopping by once again and commenting on my hub. I treasure this poem with all my heart and did want to share. Craig's sister always told me he could write - but he went into business instead; yet I have evidence of how he could put words together. Hubhugs to you. All the best for 2013.

      What a magnificent piece -- and in sharing you've given hope to those who have never had true love and might possibly be losing hope of ever having it -- so very needed in these strange times. Thank you -- and Happy New Year from Texas! Best/Sis

      Thank you Paula - you are right - it is a treasure! I thought it was time I shared it for the poets on hubpages; part of it is in my book, but not the whole thing. Ask me why - for some reason at the time I thought it was too personal - now I put it here - LOL.
