Can't you put your arms around me,
And love me like you should?
For I thought I had a partner,
Like you, that understood.

Though I tell you what I'm feeling,
Somehow it goes unheard.
I tell you what I need,
You still say not a word.

For years you know I've been there,
Been stationed at your side.
As you move from job to job,
And swallowed not your pride.

I'm asking you to understand,
What I am going through.
A little bit of tenderness,
Is all I'm asking you.

To take a minute of your time,
And really hold me close.
I simply need to feel from you,
Your love in one small dose.

I don't think it's much to ask,
For all that we've been through.
For I have given all I can,
In understanding YOU!

Sometimes, it needs to be said, WhtDove. We men aren't always that smart....and the way you say it is perfect.

Thank you Sue! And Balladeer, that means a lot coming from you!
I know one was made to compliment the other, but sometimes it just don't work that way!

WhtDove,
a lovely poem,
I would put on a tape in subliminal form
and play in when he goes to sleep *L*
