Requirements


Take my hand when my eyes weep.
Hold me gently in your arms.
Finger my curls, as I sleep.
Dazzle me with all your charm.

Provide me time and space.
Listen closely when I speak.
Secure in your life my place.
Support me the times I'm weak.

Cherish our time together.
Dread any time we're apart.
Mean when you say forever.
Let my absence gnaw your heart.

And let all my joys be yours.
Let my sorrows be as well.
And share relationship chores.
Mind your ego lest it swell.

And I beg you never fight.
Let us walk our time in peace.
With a kiss for every night,
Let our passions never cease.

But above all these my dove,
Swear always that you'll be true.
For's not you I ask these of...
They're my promises to you.

Love the last verse, Christopher. This piece is very well written. I do not give out idle praise. This piece is a beauty.

Another really nice tribute to your young lass - - I really like the form/style you used on this one...it displays nicely centered too, like you did...BRAVO! Your old heart does sing quite nicely when you're in love, dear Chris! LOL

So sweet, Chris. The last stanza really pulls it together. (sigh) If only there was more love in this dismal world.....

This brought a to my face. Love has a way of melting even the most stubborn of hearts (and I mean mine not yours!).

Chris, a wonderful poem...as usual, and a lovely tribute. One line I would change though:
For s'not you I ask these of...
to For's not you I ask these of...

Kinda had me scratchin' my nose, ya know, with that one...hehe.

ROFLMAO... please add a "me, too" to Michael's request... that nose thing isn't quite an appropriate response to such a lovely poem! *G*

You all are too amazing for me!

(wink) thanks sis!

Scott- enjoying every moment of it that isn't filled with the sorrow of being apart!

Ohme- Thank you for reading!

RSEvans- Thank you, I would much rather recieve honest criticism rather than false praise!

Hoot- Just remember that you have to share them as well as recieve them!

G- Thank you...I think. Are you trying to say my heart doesn't sing well when I'm not in love???

Amy- I think that in order to find love...first we must love

K- echo my mirror

Sky- Ahh, 'tis a glad thing to hear..but worry not...I too have a stubborn heart...just doesn't look like it anymore!

Michael- S'not a problem! (LOL...I didn't notice it until you pointed it out! Thank you! )

Suthern- still groaning and wiping my nose...LOL

WhtDove- Thank you as well....I'm just glad to hear that someone else has thought the same way. In truth, most of my happiness is derived from the joy of others. I am happy when others are smiling. S'not much to ask, but for some reason, not everyone understands it!

Balladeer- Naw...you're too quick to let anything pass you by!!! Thank you sir!

Once again, thank you everyone, you are too kind, and I am (almost ) humbled!
