For You

I would be as gentle as the snow
That lights as soft, as quietly
As music on a failing ear,
As rain falls on a silent sea.

I would be still as leaves along
a windless path, as still as death.
And yet, as still as water is
At midnight, or as babies' breath.

I would be tender as the grass
That pushes up in early spring;
As tender as a mother's touch,
Or tears a child's lost dream might bring.

I would be true, as friends are true,
Each to the other's heart; I would
Make honesty my signature,
And faithfulness my heart's lifeblood.

I would be gentle, I would be
Still, and tender, and always true.
I would be all things that are good
If I could be them all for you.

Beki (1989)

All righty then - Beki - You definitely have my quill on the move.... This is not only a great love poem, but it's one giant sequential simile as well....
