Afraid

When I look into your eyes
I can see the warmth of your soul,
along with the purity of a love
that only god could ever know.
Your spirit shines brighter
than any light I've ever seen,
whenever I am near you
I pray and hope your not a dream.
Your voice like an angel
whispers deep within my ears,
if again I never heard it
I would forever shed tears.
What I wouldn't give for the moment
to hold you tightly in my arms,
if only just to protect you 
from a life so full of harms.
But since I'm a person
who's deathly afraid of rejection,
I guess I'll forever hold onto
all of your love and affection.

    Such a very lovely write your heart has shared David my friend! Many times I have felt the fear of rejection and kept my feelings hidden deep inside as I ached to let them be known. Don't let this be you my friend...tell the woman how much you adore her...:)

    David, it is special to me because of the tenderness and gentle love expressed in such a wistful way. It gives a melting feeling that kind of catches the breath. You have penned a very lovely verse and I enjoy reading it again and again. It is always fresh to me.

    Hey David, This poem is touching. We pass people in the street but the affection is not there. but some how our souls touch someone and connect. That is the inital spark that bring love that is the strongest emotion we have and with it the fear of being disconnected. I love your poem. More please.
