    dedicated to the one who gave him GOOD poetry...soo good...

    she said
    he's building
    her a house

    on a firm foundation

    on the strength
    of her heartbeats
    the trust
    in her eyes
    & the fire
    she stirs in him
    whenever she
    sighs

    she said
    the framework
    in place
    ...was already there

    he's been around
    the block
    ...there's none
    that compare

    she said

    he's an
    energetic
    archetect
    fashioning
    raw materials
    with loving hands

    daily
    he unveils
    each phase
    of the plans

    she speaks
    & I see rooms
    and yards
    for their sons to roam

    he's building
    his dream house
    she'll make it
    their home

    :heart:

    good poetry, ehh???

    you know I've heard it called many, many things....
    but leave it to you to put it into terms we all can relate to, and appreciate....while giving us the most pleasant visuals at the same time!

    yes, poetry, indeed!

    thank you sis! :wink:

    Yes Alyce......

    You are a gifted writer, I love the way you interpret things.......this is a masterpiece, and the best rendition of what it means when a woman loves a man,or a man loves a woman and the foundation they use to make it a place of refuge for thier life, I have never seen it put this way. They see so much potential in the one they love. You are sooo good at what you do.
