Love Me More

A month of gentle loving May,
With fields awake with flowers;
On a woodland path we play,
In a moonlit dream’s sweet hours;
With a hope that had no fear,
A kiss for you, a sigh at last
When we held last year
And now, all that is past.

What a lovely world we knew,
When all was bathed in pearly dew;
With fireflies lit all aglow,
In wistful times of long ago.
When your eyes were wet with tears,
For all the lost and lonely years;
With all the songs that lovers know,
That you and I sang so long ago.

When the wind was on the river,
And starlight danced where shadows shiver
Twas then I held you close to me
And knew our love would always be,
For you took away the hours of sorrow.
And loved me more with each tomorrow;
So bring me hope and stars above me,
And love me more but always love me.

    '...starlight danced where shadows shiver,' '...with a hope that had no fear,' such emotive phrasing! This poem is the equivalent of a big old blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and a hug from your special one...

    * "'And Love Me More But Always Love Me' * What A Beautiful Final Thought Amid An Extremely Beautiful Poem * My Dear Precious, Gifted & Beautiful Elizabeth * I Can Hardly Imagine At This Point In Knowing The Depthful Treasures Of Your Wonderful Splendours * Anyone Whom Could Not Help But To Love Your Beauty More & More * No Time Shall Ever Forbid This Truth * My Luv, Until The Heavens Fall From The Sky * Always & Forever * Sarah." *

    very touching is your poem,,,it takes my soul from me,,,,and i find it running away to find true love,,,,,,it throws my thoughts aside of my everyday world and insists on me longing for a deeper feeling of a emotion that means so much more....

    Your Poem has as a fav. one. " What a lovely world we knew, When all was bathed in pearly dew; With fireflies lit all aglow, In wistful times of long ago. When your eyes were wet with tears, For all the lost and lonely years; With all the songs that lovers know, That you and I sang so long ago." Ravindra

    Beautiful poem rather a lovely Song with some great lines and feelings. Although the entire Poem is too good my friend, but it's second and third stanzas leaves many things behind. Great write and a fascinating one as well. Thanks for your kind and lovely words on my Poems. Love and best wishes........Ravindra... ... elizabeth wesley

    Your endless night of romantic tribute. No river of hate could ever dilute. The flow of love within your heart. No past love would want to part. Dear Elizabeth, this is lovely. Yours, that is.:)

    love is a wonderous thing, beyond words at its best, a torment in hell at its worst. thankfully this poem is not beyond words, a beautiful write elizabeth

    Such lovely lines, each and every single one of them. Inspired by your style, I am currently trying to finish a poem, attempting to express lost love through nature; I think it'll take ages to complete. Just how do you do it?????? All I have been able to do so far is write the first 4 lines. By the way, when I post it, i'll mention my inspiration too so you know.

    wow,this is so beautiful and lyrical, elizabeth. Very nice. As for Lily Jane, I can't make her more famous than Truman Capote already did, but I wish I were as famous as Capote.haha!!
