Tenderest Love

Updated on February 27, 2015
Source

Tender love, may your impassioned kiss be true,

Tell me now, so I may know what to do.

May the love hold gently, yet deep

In my arms you’ll forever be.


In the day may life be held dear

And in the night, it is so ever clear

When the sun does brightly shine,

The earth and stars are intrinsically mine.


Your kiss is that forever sweet

May love hold strong, and discord unseat.

You’re surrounded by a tender glow

May it stay forever, a beacon to show.


And when my heart should require a rest,

Sleep overcomes me, though I protest.

And when daylight comes and I awake

The sweet wine of my passions I shall partake.


Then twilight comes to me in state,

My pen has written what I navigate,

And the flowers bloom outside of spring

Whence indigo ink, a kiss in spite of everything.


My position in life is what is true

My heart is there for only you;

Simple things are pleasures in life, untold

A gallant effort, not necessarily bold.


I caress your hand in my mind each day

And kiss your lips through unwritten ballet.

My song will be sung in night and morn

And never will I taste the seed of silent forlorn.


As long as your hold my heart in your embrace

A life of wonder will beat in its tender place.

And when my final time has come

Could I but hope my soul will not succumb.


Let’s live life to the fullest and brightest degree,

Where the nightingale comes and beckons to me

Hold me close and support me anon

As before you know it, a short life is gone.

      Thanks, Vellur. Time goes faster than we think it ever well, and we always seem to put off more today than tomorrow. Once we heed the call, we'll be all right.

      Thank YOU, ChitrangadaSharan. It came to me one day, and I was in front of the computer. It's so funny, sometimes things will at work, and I must jot these things down quickly before I forget them, like titles to stories in back of my mind, etc. Do you get that, too?

      I know, Deb . We all are part of this wonderful nature. Tender like dew drops and wild like wild horses and its in all of us but what matters most is that, who enjoy being amidst wild ...who nurture wilderness!!! You really do care about nature and I appreciate that. Many just talk and don go beyond the spheres of words. But to act on words, you do that my friend.

      Love your tenderness and the wilderness in your soul ...so real which is so apparent in your words.

      Thanks, Billy. I have had trouble with that, too. If I have to wait too long, I cut, copy, paste, then repeat. Wait a minute....isn't that like a shampoo? Thanks!
