How can I tell you
In so convincing a way
That I am yours
I could tell your eyes with my lips
Your shoulders with my breath
Your tummy with my cheek
Your bosom with my embrace

I could whisper in your ear
Massage your feet
Sponge warm water on your back
Stroke my fingers along your contours

I could listen to you without saying anything
And love you

Yes I am yours my lovely

    David...this is the kind of love poem any woman would cherish. It is subtle, conveys honor, and the true depth of love. Beautiful! I have not seen you around and hope you are well? Blessings my friend. Connie 7 : )
