Your face I need not see
To know your true beauty
For I have seen your heart
That is the place to start

I see your beauty in my mind
The beauty I have longed to find
In my dreams your face I have touched
To me our love has meant so much

I hear your heart's true voice
It is the only real choice
Beauty may be only skin deep
But it's your heart I want to keep

aw Sven that was beautiful, wonderful and heart felt.

Sven~

I'm becoming a real fan of your poetry.  That was beautiful.  It's a wonderful thing to have the heart of someone you love.     Beautiful, heartfelt poem.

You have such a romantic heart Sven!  A beautiful poem, your best yet.  Every poem you write just gets better and better.  As always you speak of love so well.  You are the Shakespeare and Casanova of this forum!

*Crack crack*
Hear that cracking sound?
That's the sound of girls hearts breaking everywhere.
All breaking because Svenster the Romantic is
after only one heart!  
I really enjoyed this one Sir!

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

Exactly the sentiments I have been trying to come to grips with.  You have written the thoughts so well.   James

It's the type of verse every woman wishes a man would write about her.  You have touched the heart of this romantic!!  Great job.

WOW I don't know where to begin that was a very moving poem

It's amazing what a heart full of love and a pen and paper (or keyboard and screen) allows us to do

Very well put I hope she enjoyed this poem
