Jump in and take a chance on love…

I will take your hands
Feel your human flesh
Give love another chance
As life lays a path

This is genuine love
And not just a dream
You are real, my love
Not an imaginary ghost

I will hold your face
Look deep in your eyes
Find truth and passion
And a place to rest

You are there for me
Waiting and wanting
Ready to give love
Willing to share life

I place my hands in yours
Feel your human flesh
Hold your heart in mine
Like earth holds the sky

You and me, my love
With tears and laughter
For better and worse
Till the end of life!

    Hey Icy…very nice. As someone commented to me, you say a lot here without saying it, leaving it to the imagination. Alfred Hitchcock used to do that in his movies. This is very nice. Have a great Easter!

    This is a fantastic poem. I can feel the love coming through. How so very beautiful love is… And think, the longer it lasts the more beautiful it gets.
