Like a flower, you sit upon the stem of my heart feeding on my love.

You have completed the imperfect man in me to love you with perfect love by giving me all of you to enjoy in sweet, tender lovemaking.

Sometimes, I find myself lost in daytime dreams, wondering how I became the keeper of your beautiful heart and soul with just the gift of poetry.

My darling bride, with beautiful you in my life and in my heart there is always one more tomorrow.

Upon the bosom of love, I lay my heart alongside yours and under the growth of love, the knowledge of fidelity and devotion have been imparted in me to love you with joyous tears.

My darling bride, I love you because you possess the secrets to my dreams that hold only you in exaltation...high above the jewels of heaven.

I love you because you are the flower watering my heart with peace and tranquility.

I love you because you represent truth and faithfulness under the sacred vows of our marriage.

At midnight, our spirits become one while love keeps us close bearing the same dreams...with forever as our destination.

When a new dawn comes into view, I slowly lift my eyes to see the sun smiling bashfully as it gently warms our naked bodies with its timeless luminescence.

(Condensed version of a poem I wrote a few years ago for my beautiful wife) ©

  2. Dear Sweet Andy,
    This prompt is really one for you! Your poem is such a beautiful tribute to the woman you love. I wish that there were more men in this world who had at least a few drops of your feeling for the romantic.

    Once again, Andy, thank you for introducing me to RFWers!

    Best wishes & hugs,
    Anna

  3. Andy I don't see a preferred crit code for your RFW post, so I'm taking a risk that you accept some crit comments. I was a little pulled out of the poetry (and granted, I'm no form of poet so take this with a biased heart) at the line:

    "My darling bride, with beautiful you in my heart and in my life there is always one more tomorrow." I think it is the "beautiful you" that throws off my perespective in this poem.

    The rest, of course, is just beautiful. I am captivated by the clarity of love in this tribute to a wife.

    Well done Andy.

    1. Dear Donna,
      Thank you for the feedback. My critique code is actually at the very end of the RFW introduction. I can understand how I might have thrown you off with the line you mention. There was a lot more to this letter/poem, but I did have to censor it because it was just too personal and contained sentiments I didn't want to share with the whole world. I appreciate your kindness & thank you for taking the time to read it.

  21. Okay Andy...I just had this image of a new business that would boom. Women get depressed so often in life. I can picture you having a phone service, could even be recorded, of your posts. A woman needs to hear sweet words of love and commitment. She pays x amount of $$ for the call and hears your words. OMG! There you go! You would be a millionaire within a year! I know you are probably giggling right now, but I'm serious! You have such a God-given talent for making a woman feel good by your words. I hope you realize that :)

  22. Hi Andy. As always pure delight. This is one of my favourites of yours. Nothing took me out of the poem, for me it was delicious from beginning to end. There were too many sparking lines to mention any specific ones. Your wife is a lucky woman as you are a lucky man to be so inspired by her.
