Oh, the touch of your
sweet lips
as you gently kiss
my cheek
I see forever when I gaze into
your eyes
and suddenly my knees
go weak

I have been dreaming of
this moment
and what a sweet dream
it is
Having you here right by
my side
so this is what they call
heavenly bliss?

I have often wondred how true
love feels
my heart tells me to wonder
no more
For in your arms I've
finally found
what life is worth
living for



 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Jeffery, whilst I decided not to, you went ahead... what the heck, you have made the most out of the opportunity... All's fair in .... and ...

Nice poem here, my friend, a subtly passionate one.

Regards, sudhir.

 My heart is pounding, my stomach's inside out
I'm feeling kind-a-shaky, my mind is full of doubt
All I ever think about, is fearing fear itself,
Wish I could unscrew my head and put it on the shelf
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Don't know what I'm looking at, the lights are all too bright
My brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor
Sweep 'em up. Throw 'em away, don't want 'em anymore
Clouds race across the sky, day turns into night,
Still there are the questions, no answers in sight
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Starin' out the window, everything is just too bright
Brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor,
Wish I could unscrew my head, and kick it out the door...
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange

Jeff!!
This was so sweet! You truly are the
hopeless romantic  . I loved reading
this and can't wait to see more.
Take care.

Oh my part 2 is better than the first,
thy heart is beating stronger, with every word spoken, this fair maiden heart has been stirred, how magnificent this meeting occurred, by thy pen of thy poets hand,
I have often dreamed of this fairytale land,
now I believe...
