    Hi Kelly, thanks for dropping by and the comment. Love, the eternal, It Is always in the forefront of my thoughts. Romance is what keeps me strong. To Love is to be closer to the eternal than at any other time. They say, "Love Is of the spirit, Sex Is of the body." They are right of course. Give me Love every time. Nurture the rose within thy heart. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Michael I don't write poetry myself but do love reading them and to me that was a very beautiful romantic poem and I do love rhyme, probably because my husband Peter writes rhyme, thank you for that, have a great Christmas. Vera

    Hi Vera, thanks for dropping by and the comment. The gift of romance. A man should be able to show his feelings through words, so few do these days. Myself, the Love is in the heart so put it out there. As long as i can think and breathe the words shall come out. You and Peter enjoy your Christmas as well. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Virginia, thanks for dropping by and the comment. Always keep a rose within your heart, I do. Love ever blooms within me, maybe that's why I don't really do the sad writes, I have no reason to be sad. As long as I have love within me there is no need for sadness. Love is the eternal. Have a good day. Catch you later. Yopur Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Shane thanks for dropping by and the comment. As I'm always advocaing to myself, keep it simple. I think I managed to do that at least. The heart's rose is really a special rose, once it is gained it must ever be nurtured,brought to full bloom and be kept in the core always. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Peter, thanks for dropping by and the comment. I think it is sometimes easier to keep everything simplistic, not to get lost in metaphor upon metaphor. I know a lot of people who tell me they don't like poetry because it goes over their heads. I try to write my poetry for them and simple romantics in general. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.
