BEAUTIFUL LOVE

Help me put love first 

I know I vowed to make Physical
My love for you
Every day
But in these trying days
Of work and books and dishes and
Dirty laundry
The promises of our youthful love
Seems so distant
And I’m now a woman with tired bones
The body has limits and the mind
Follows
My heart desperately needs help
To remember my passion

The passion of our youthful days
And first nights together
When the smell of your body
Meant the world to me
And my touch always took you to
Places anew

You are stronger than me
I admit
Able to keep enthusiastic even in
Heavy days
School never weighs you down
Work seems to bring out the best in you
And the  children are your constant joy

But am the opposite
And I would forget I ever had a
Crazy bone
And a wild mind
If you don’t help my heart a bit
And let me know
It’s okay to leave the dishes undone
As long as we aren’t putting love last

So kiss me before you put the
Groceries down
And love me before dinner
Let me find a love note in my pocket
At work
And my heart will remember
Love has to come first no matter what
Then somehow I’ll find the strength
To love your before anything else

COURTING YOU


Even as we plan and work
Towards settling
Even as we await grace’s one
Act of miracle
That will go beyond what our
Strengths can do and catapult
Us to the place where I’ll find myself
Vowing to love and submit to you
Forever

This journey with you
Called courting
Is doing things to me that
Marvels my mind and amazes
My heart
Emotionally pruning and fine tuning
The thoughts of my heart
And the actions of one who
Claims she’s in love….
It’s taking away my personal space
And grafting your soul to mine
Zapping out every breath of selfishness
Left in this feminine soul
Introducing me to principles
I’d have to marry
A chance to try them on like
New heels and practice walking
In them till I can flair like a model

Its giving me a peek
Into a life that demands strength of
Character and
The courage to submit and put away
That part of me that knows not
How to be gentle
And the grace to care for a masculine
Heart and little hands 

And so when with class and glorious
Beauty I finally stand before the altar
To say I do
It will be with a mind and resolute
Heart that’s knows very well
What it means to sow my future
To the hem of your trouser.

Kiss me already

​  

It’s rainy and cold

The air is heavy with longings

Of warm bedsheets and you

Presently

My imagination has your face

Warm in between my two palms

And your slow breath

Against mine

Sending trickles

Down my body

Spreading goosebumps in it’s path

And pre-preparing my feminine body

For the wonders your man can do to me.

Kiss me already!

But before that

Lemmie hug you long and warm

Lemmie hold you…

Inhale your exhale

Let us cuddle and stay in eternity

For a brief moment

You’re all I want.

Love Is

​ 

– your first poem to me

– the pride with which you introduce me as your woman

– the rebukes and corrections you give in love

– you telling me I’m the only family you have

– you grooming me into a woman of greater virtue and class

– the sweet messages I wake up to

– the intensity in your eyes when you say I love you

Love is you.

Try listing out the things you love about him or her………….
Did it require so much effort and pondering? If they don’t get to ten should you feel bad?…..is it a bad sign?

Evolving Love

​  


Through acts of love, rebukes

And huddles overcome

You can actually hold still

And hear us evolving

I did not love you like I do now

If you rewind a month away

I did not trust you like I do now

If you fast-back October

I did not believe in us like I do now

If you replay a season before

I never knew I would come to fall so

Desparately in love with you

And I wonder if papa knows the

Date for our wedding even before

We set it

And knows we need to go through

All this growth, and pain and beauty

Before our hearts and souls say I do

And knows the aftermath Experiences of our marriage that

A part of me dreads and a part of me

Looks forward to

That every day brings you closer

To knowing every one of my demons

And how I bruise and scar and cry

Ever too frequently

And how I forget things ever too easily

Scares me

Yet I can only but stare

And hope our love will survive it

And our strength will indeed

Build for us

A family with a heritage

That will resonate for years of posterity.

Relationships that survive the process of two strangers exposing their flaws to each other…misunderstandings caused by human nature and the huddles life itself throws at man is a sight to behold.

And in this century…for it to survive marriage and build a heritage is another miracle.

From hindsight it’s beautiful to watch the process of evolution……..indeed it’s interestingly beautiful.

Let’s Circle Again

The adventure of unraveling

An interesting soul…

A personality that is able to do things

No other being can do to you

You come to find that

The gaze

Blush

Shudder

Of getting to know him…

As you two circle around each other

Is a thrill that can never be compared

To any other moment of history

You two shall share together…

When bones shall become old

And you’ve both made love in every

Possible Way

A decade after.

Contradictions

​ 


Serious and coy

Flirty and motherly

A man’s mind, a woman’s arms

Her delicate palms, her strong heart

She’s the woman who’s got my heart

With a cute tie on curvy hips

I watch her walk out of her office

Those long slender legs

Slid into my car and said ‘drive’

Her analytical brains

Prepared my financial budget

Able hands built our home

Soft lips

Eased tension from a life time of

Tensed muscles

Her softness

Cushioned my hardness

She changed my world

Sunlight in a dense forest

Rain on patched desert

She brought meaning to my life

Strict yet tender

Strong yet vulnerable

This is the woman I’m

In love with

And will forever be

We were meant to be.
