Shy, yet not meek in anyway, 
Those charms are not hidden from me,
I dream of you throughout my days, 
Eyes steeped in spice like ginger tea, 
And that Scot’s hair, such a deep red, 
Each sigh you give, every word said, 
Captivates me, renders me weak,
Your voice enthralls, I can not speak, 
Handsome, but don’t see yourself so, 
A strong profile, a firm physique, 
I blush because my heart’s aglow. 

You’re gallant and rush to the fray,
Helping young and retirees,
Giving your all, nothing’s halfway,
A peacekeeper and referee,
Fierce beliefs kept in a cool head,
Honour bound, I was not mislead,
You are all I want, all I seek,
I press my hand to my pink cheek,
I’m moved for your character shows,
Here stands a man, good and unique, 
I blush because my heart’s aglow.

Scarred but not crushed by yesterday,
The boy caged, but the man now free,
Your inner strength did not decay,
I rock the child you used to be,
But you lift your chin, shake your head,
Say that some paths can’t be retread,
Your outlook is bright, yet could be bleak,
Another’s blows you don’t critique, 
As I learn, admiration grows, 
You journey upwards to that peak,  
I blush because my heart’s aglow.

Your slow kiss makes my body sway,
Unhurried lips just undo me,
You hold my hand, I’m a cliché,
Your smitten girl, your devotee.
I’ve lost my grace, my feet are led,
Words escape, I’ve lost my head,
I pinch myself, give arms a tweak,
Still I babble, blurt and squeak,
You’ll never know how much I know,
From tip to toe warm colours leak,
I blush because my heart’s aglow.

You’re not one for a big soiree, 
But I’ve waltzed ‘neath sycamore tree,
Been swept away by rose bouquets,
And heard my name in breathless pleas.
Stars stitched you to me, tender threads,
The moon heard us and her arms spread,
Our desire has never piqued, 
Sweet, the teasing and the mystique,
This aura you’ve made, watch it flow,
My flush crafted by your technique, 
I blush because my heart’s aglow.

Look closer, please, take a long peek,
I’ll lay it out, won’t doublespeak,
My love to you I do bestow,
Heat rises, that’s why all flames streak,
I blush because my heart’s aglow.

    Lovely romantic piece for your husband, Cyndi - I'm aglow at the moment, LOL - so pleased and relieved you liked the poem for you : ) Yes, I can imagine how this time of year must be sad for you, and I can understand how your father's last smile must bring you such comfort. Thanks for sharing that with me - very moving indeed. Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend x
