    You

    Everywhere I’ve been
    I’ve thought of you
    …Longed for you
    Whether at a dusty dusk
    Or in morning’s dew
    It all reminds me
    Of you

    During season’s change
    There were wondrous things
    Though, I’ve never complained
    None compared
    To you

    You
    Who treats me with such kindness
    And adoration
    Who
    Redefines what it is to be
    In a relation(ship)
    Who
    Lives to be
    The person for me
    Providing everything I would ever need

    YOU.

    If such a thing
    As the perfect mate
    Exists
    You
    Would be the one
    I would wish
    To share my life
    With

    YOU

    Not some fantasy dream
    Or imaginary queen
    But the REAL thing

    YOU.

    Dear Brother Poet Baller,

    Exquisite. I can envision the subject speaking these words to his intended right before he proposes. Lovely tribute to a REAL queen.

    Seriously, my friend...I love this piece. The "YOU"(s) are so animated. The poet in me wants to respond to this but I will refrain.

    I'm just going to say right here and now that you know how to evoke the raw emotions... you touch the deep places, my friend! The seasons of life have ripened your gifts beautifully! Excellent peace!

    I agree with TotalView, it speaks sweetly to the ears of a bride-to-be...

    ...and I'm so glad about it :)

    let's just say that the seasons of life have put me in a good place...however, one that allows me to write less than i once did but i'm getting back into the flow of it. THANKS for the wonderful words. i see that special gift you have has grown rich with flavor, as well. "The Poet Spoke My Mind" was a deep and heartfelt piece. thank you for that.

    baller, one thing is for certain - the experiences of life, well lived (lessons learned), serve to break us, and (re) make us. Blessed are we who live to tell the story!
    Keep doing it well, my friend! :) I'm out here reading!!
