POETRY: YOUR GIFT TO ME

Updated on October 19, 2011
Source


Your gift to me


From day one


You fixed this heart


That came undone


Your gift to me


Is your caring soul


Your reassurance


To not let me go


Your gift to me


Is your warm embrace


I see our love


Written on your face


Your gift to me


Was your hand


Your ability too


Always understand


Your gift to me


As we lay in bed


When you snuggle close


Head to head


Your gift to me


As I am asleep


You stay awake


To listen to me breathe


Your gift to me


A gift of true love


A smiling touch


As I almost gave up


Your gift to me


Is your tender heart


The fact you were


Here at the start


Your gift to me


Two babies of joy


One little girl


One little boy


Your gift to me


After all these years


Is every single second


That I have you here


If you haven't heard, well worth the time!

      Thanks Jami. I really don't do poetry that much, so coming from a true poet as yourself, your comment hits home. I usually write lyrical cause I am used to writing lyrics. Thank you so much.

      Your gift is good

      Your thoughts are sound

      Your inspiration abounds

      Your passion proud

      You’re a grounded man

      With gifts to give

      A world in need of being

      A better place

      To love embrace

      And win the right to hold the heart

      That makes the time

      To embrace your space

      A thought that came to me reading this hub, knowing the meaning of those words that were an inspiration to love and living ........Ausseye

      They are all of them right... you are a romantic. I had to smile when I read this

      Your gift to me

      As I am asleep

      You stay awake

      To listen to me breathe

      I often wake to find my partner just watching me, there is just something special in this that makes you feel safe and loved.

      I like the fact that you included your babies as gifts for they surely are.

      You have a wonderful heart my friend and it shows with every single word you write.

      Love is good for something indeed. Unconditional love keeps us bound together. Living without Love in one's life is empty, sad and lonely. You are a romantic, so nice to read. Two people in love is heaven sent. Blessings and hugs from the Saddle. Beautiful scribe..bravo.
