Author's Notes: This particular romantic Shakespearean Sonnet, entitled: "Your Kiss," is being released and posted by me to Poetry Soup today October 14, 2014 which just happens to be my 63rd birthday. I am dedicating "Your Kiss," in honor of my wife of over 23 years -- Ingrid. In this write, I scrupulously upheld the strict requirements for the structuring and flowing of this sonnet following the traditions established by Shakespeare. For me, as a poet and writer, the implied acts of "Kissing," "Touching," "Caressing," and "Gazing" are all very emotive actions that are to be beheld and cherished when a man and a woman are involved in that most intimate and sharing relationship between two people. Both of these states of being or attributes together constitute a most special feeling and a powerful emotive force in our lives. (Gary Bateman, October 14, 2014) (Shakespearean Sonnet poetic format)
