    arms stretched wide
    so that you can
    enter my world
    and i can embrace
    you with all that's
    within me,
    consumes me,
    creates me,
    incites me,
    to love thee
    in ways no other can

    here i am holding you close
    whispering in your ear
    love you eternal...

    happiness is in me
    when thoughts of you
    dances in my spirit
    shhh.can you hear it
    the moments of joy
    strumming melodies of
    tomorrow on the strings
    of my heart as the beat
    from my soul keeps the
    tempo and it is you whom
    i shall never let go...

    close your eyes,
    think of love,
    smile at joy,
    grin at today,
    rest in AGAPE,
    bathe in blessed,
    walk in peace,
    reside in me...

    D...

    ...love is most definitely
    your specialty (as if you
    didn't know that already).
    You write of love in such
    a way that is all your own.
    I'm always touched...
    always...:)

    Those arms are so openly beautiful and you stand in a place where so few men have dared to go...

    You stand on the courage of men

    "reside in me" you took me to the garden with this poem. I like what you've done to the place.
