Last night you fell asleep in my arms, I adored you.
Held you tight beneath the sheets,
kept you warm with the timeless poetry
of John Keats and W.B. Yeats.
And in that moment I knew,
why Maya Angelou wrote...
"Touched by an Angel".
"Once upon a midnight dreary"
I spoke of Poe while weak and weary.
In the midst of love to keep from drowning,
I recited Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
How do I love thee?
Would take me days to count the ways
for there has never been, nor will ever be,
one as beautiful as you.
Promise you I'll always be here,
eternal like Neruda, Frost...
In case you hadn't noticed yet,
I'm your Romeo, you're my Juliet.
Impossible to match your beauty,
it's true. E.E. said it best.
"I Carry Your Heart With Me"
When you awake you'll be in my arms,
spent the night captivated by your charms.
More beautiful when you awake than most are in a lifetime.
You're every love poem ever written,
and you're mine!
Wow! Karl I'm speechless! This poem is SOOO beautiful and unique! And I must say it's hard for love poems to be unique sometimes but this was exceptional =) it gave me such a sweet feeling, this girl is super lucky! I loved the allusions to the famous poets and poems (which most are my favorite!) such a nice lovely poem... Great job!
This poem is not only lovely and tender but it
is also written with such beauty and warmth
I can feel the love radiate from your words! I
like how you incorporated each poet's and their poem with yours...beautiful, simply beautiful!!
