On One Knee

Listen to poem:


if you wanted to dance with me
i mean really wanted to dance with me
then i would
i would dance with you

if you needed me to walk on water
i would stand there until the lake froze
then i would
i would walk on water for you

if you suggested i climb 
a mountain 
warm at the bottom
freezing at the peak 
i'd buy you a snow globe
turn it upside down and up
hold your hand warm 
watch the freezing snowfall
climb your suggestion creatively

if you mentioned 
you'd like me to paint your portrait 
i'd buy every different colour of acrylic paint I could find
blend them on a canvas
paint your colourful internal portrait
every crayon in the box 
that's who i see

if you said move me
i wouldn't hire a truck
or even touch one stick of furniture
i would write this poem for you
put a bow on it
fingers crossed 
i would move you

your lips are always on my mind

if you want a man
willing to do...
...a man...
...hold you gentle but firm

i'm here 

ring in hand 
on one knee

Hi Armand, another excellent write from your hand. One reads spellbound from the first word to the last. So simple the words flow and yet so strong the feelings they show upon the page. Once again your write does make me feel peace but also love, love for my own lady. You hold your readers imagination from beginning to the end of each peace you write. This piece is such a gentle slice of love my friend. This has to be a seven and a fave. Your Friend always....Mike.

Good Morning Maurice. Have a seat please and let me ramble for a moment. My goodness. I love love love this. As someone who believes in love and believes in romance entries to be shared by two special people this entry is beyond beautiful and marvelous. I see perfection in every way. All poetic elements are attached including the emotive factor which shines. The feeling and emotion are executed marvelously. I can go on but I will spare you. Well done completely and entirely. Excellent. PS perfect with the title also.

What an ending, Maurice....delicious. I loved the stanza about holding gently...but firmly...it's a wonderful man who can do both. Loved this piece. Thanks for your recent visits to my work and your words of comfort on the passing away of my Uncle. It was much appreciated.
