Up Close - Love Poem By Cathy Nerujen
"Up Close" by Cathy Nerujen
(This is a romantic poem about a growing love for a very sweet and special person in my life. Her name is Fehl.)
I’ve loved you from a distance -
now I want to be up close –
so close to you – that finally
this thing I can propose –
we've known each other for so long
we’ve laughed and cried and smiled
but deep within this friendship, Babe
you drive my senses wild.
Your soul it wants companionship –
your soul it has a sound –
it hears my thoughts –
and feels my words –
my feet float off the ground –
Into my heart – your love it flows –
my senses tell me “yes” –
you are this girl that loves me back –
that I want to possess.
You telepath you songs of love –
your voice it calls my name –
so quiet yet so open – and
my heart – it feels the same –
my soul is so in love with you –
so close and yet so far –
my Love She is a Tree –
and now - My Love she is a Star.
Some cups lie dry and empty –
yet my cup fills up with Love –
I love it when I chase you –
like the falcon and the dove –
you know that when I catch you –
I’ll devour you all the way –
but you’ll love me as I snatch you –
as there’s little else to say.
This thing we do – this way we are –
we know it's meant to be –
you take my hand and take this girl –
you love so totally –
let’s be as one – and live this love –
let’s show our true affection –
I want this ship of love to turn
and aim in your direction.
