Loving You Like This

I'll Go On Loving You
Image via Wikipedia

I didn’t
intend to let love in,

I thought
there would be too much pain,

Yet my heart
spread wide its arms,

So love’s
favor I could gain,

I was
pleasantly surprised the day we met,

How completely
I was attracted to you,

My love kept
growing stronger yet,

And I was
glad when you said, “I do,”

Long ago you
told me you were plain,

But I smiled as you slept naked beside me,

Like a fawn
shaking off the summer rain,

You shivered
and goose bumps I could see,

Now as I
hold you I still disagree,

I’ll cover
you, but not without a twinge of regret,

For I love
every part that I see,

And I’ll
cherish every moment I can get,

I brush
strands of hair from your face,

“You’re beautiful,” I whisper in the dark,

And to plant a kiss I find a place,

Hoping that
kiss might stir a spark,

I still
yearn to hold your many charms,

You might
not hear the words I say,

Those simple words that only my head knows,

Are laden
with love and might betray,

How much my
heart with passion overflows,

I grin
again, already missing your sweet kiss,

I don’t want
to rush life, I want to take life slow,

Because I
want to go on loving you like this.

  1. Sweet words Dan, of love and it’s effect, bringing two souls together as one, hopefully forever,… may your arms ever feel the warmth of a loved ones embrace. xPenx

    1. A few years ago I did feel the warmth of a loved one’s embrace. Perhaps another, or perhaps not. Grist for the writing mill. A hopeless romantic without the romance.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
