    YOU bring a smile…with each sound of your voice
    HOPE & EXPECTATION…through a variety of choice

    There is gifted brilliance in your poetic flow
    That takes me to the river…leaves me screaming for mo’

    Gimme…gimme
    I SAID…GIMME.

    But the greatest of all…is the gift of your love
    Your patience and compassion
    And ALL you’ve spoke of

    I’ve felt the closeness of a gentle(man’s) breeze
    Heard its whispers…down rivers and streams

    ~ And then came you ~

    I’ve seen the elegance of SELF-confidence
    Touched the softness of the…radiance

    ~ Encompassed by you ~

    I’ve tasted DELICIOUS from the center of you
    Smelt the (fragrance) of NATURE’S DEW

    ~ All in you ~

    I’ve experienced the mysteries of a drama-free life
    Dreamt of riches…with you as my wife

    FROM the brink of necessity…change forced us to be
    Me…there for you
    You…looking out for me
    YOU bring to fruition the things dreamt of
    …Justifying emotions with a SMILE and a HUG

    YOU emanate warmth from the depths of your soul
    And gleam, to perfection, your knowledge of old

    ~ But how do YOU make me feel? ~

    I’m bubbly with smiles at the sound of (your) voice
    Persistently choosing me…when given a choice
    And your word-choice brings chills
    When you compliment my skills

    ~ That’s how I feel ~

    As you manipulate testosterone levels
    With aphrodisiacs of sensual wordplay

    ~ Whatever can I say ~

    YOU bring all things MAN desireth in a mate
    From the warmth of your smile to the STRENGTH of your embrace
    Patience…Understanding…You deliver with ease
    Erotically enticing…Without being a sleaze
    A guiding voice…to direct my way
    Always knowing…the RIGHT things to say

    ~ Like ~

    “I love you,” when I’m leaving
    “I love you,” when I return
    “How are you?”
    “How was your day?”
    “Tell me your greatest concerns.”

    YOU’re interested in me
    And that warms my heart

    “What did you do?”
    “Was it hard?”
    “Baby…let’s never part.”

    YOU bring a smile to the soul of this man
    And warms the heart with the gentlest of hands

    When you speak of TOMORROW
    And what we CAN do
    Around a LOVER’S expectations
    Without the drama OTHERS go through

    I would accept you as my partner
    …Have you share in ALL my dreams
    I would be there when you’re down
    Lift you up…whenever you need

    And when the anniversaries begin to smile
    Upon the life the two of us chose
    I would SHARE with you my HAPPINESS
    Let you see the wave we’ve rode

    YES…I take you
    I WILL…I do
    FOREVER…I will
    Just me and you
    I DO

    ~ But how do YOU make me feel? ~

    YOU make me happy that you’re with me
    You make me glad we laugh together
    You make me sad in moments of weakness
    When I dream of us…in love, forever

    YOU make me love you more each day
    With your dreams of how we could be
    Happily in like…and deeply in love
    As romance abound…eternally

    YOU make me want to share my life
    After all the anguish OF these last few years
    When “I DO” went to “I DON’T” with another
    And everyday brought a new round of tears

    YOU make me love the thought of loving you
    And imagine the joy each day would bring
    Where life would be the stage our love would play out on
    And everyone would see what true love means

    YOU make me
    Love you.

    DURING OUR LIFETIME...

    ...we hope to find
    hope...in the eyes of others
    joy...in the arms of our lover
    peace and contentment in our castle
    and extending pleasure in the dream of a life ever-after

    Poets&Poetesses...i thank you.

    Brotha Baller :) this was so beautiful.
    It was a soft romantic and in the assertiveness of its acclaimed love... it was empowering :) :read: :)
    In my mind I could hear "THE MAKINGS OF YOU" in the background of your piece :)
