The Question (poem)

Updated on February 2, 2013

Not just a sonnet

Be all my dreams come true for this one day

Endue your faithful heart this grand bequest

Make all my mind-swept worries drift away

Your servant hopes you’ll heed a soul’s request

Vain thoughts perhaps are these within my head

Adrift in wish that you’ll say yes to me

Let me announce my plea from knees instead

Entombed consumed till words will set me free

No other care is drifting in the air

The world awaits the song upon your lips

Intense the silent sound heard everywhere

Not ever had I known how slow time slips

Each fiber which is me in this resigns

So say that you will be my Valentines

      Oh, what a lovely poem of love for the upcoming Valentine's Day, and the anticipation it brings in hoping of the answer . . . YES!!! I love the very lovely bouquet of roses---nice touch!

      I remember back in early school days, when we would get that note passed to us to check either, "yes" or "no" to be his Valentine . . . it was always such a difficult decision.

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
