I Give you My Heart

                         sweetheart                            sweetheart 
                    for you to ask me                  (                       )   )   
                 the reason I love you so        (                                    )
                is to ask a bird why it sings  (                                         )
            or if it could  fly without wings                                              )
          why does a rose bloom in spring                                             )
           why do those bells have to ring             I Need you here        )
           why do leaves cleave to a tree                 by my side          )
                why does honey need bees                                        )
                  there is really no mystery                                     )
                     it is  just  their  destiny                                  )
                      the same as you and I                             )
                             predestined to be                         )
                                   for I am only                   )
                                     half a heart               )
                                           without          )
                                                you    )

    Dear Lainie, I am so happy you placed high with this one. I adore it! And anytme you want, you can ask me for edits. I did it for six years for a magazine, but as I told someone else here today, I often mess up on my OWN poems for the silliest little things. LUv, andrea

    Beautiful and lovely Poem with a beautiful drawing of heart that too without brush and paint. You must be a good artist having lots of drawings in your mind. I like the poem very much. All the best for your entry in 'why do you love'. On love I am also writing a long story poem Boatman’s love. Hope you would like it. Best wishes and love Ravindra
