A Night Of Love - Poem by Melvina Germain

You set a table for two,
Oh babe, just for me and you.
Poured a glass of red wine,
handsomely dressed, you look so fine.

You looked at me and I at you,
we were meant to be.
The world belongs to you and me.
Your eyes met mine,
the feeling, so divine.

Oh Lord, don’t let this feeling end,
you’ve given me a lover and a best friend.
Is this a dream, will I wake up soon…..
Ahh, the music… playing… my favourite tune.

Please let this evening last,
no thoughts of yesterdays past..
You bring me joy, set my heart on fire.
Babe, you are the only one I desire.

Hold me close, let your heart meet mine,
Squeeze me tenderly, our bodies entwine.
I will truly love you, till the end of our days.
No matter what may come our way.

The music plays on and on,
dancing into the night listening to sweet song.

Swinging and twirling, with smiles on our face.
So blessed, we have found that special place.

    oh drat! I erased the comment I was working on!

    well, you offered me the poem “A Night of Love”. I didn’t find it, but I DID find “A Night Of Love”! close enough!

    I like it through stanza 2; that’s how far I’ve gotten so far.

    done. although I don’t get too excited at the prospect of reading another ‘love poem’ [I prefer humor, horror, and hummingbirds; not necessarily all together], I guess I could send this to MyPoemList.

    favorite lines:
    “Please let this evening last,
    no thoughts of yesterdays past.” ……………. past is good; passed would work also I think.

    but here is a test for you (and me) : do you mind if I suggest a change to one line? I don’t hear a “NO”, so here I go

    “Swinging and twirling, with smiles on our face.
    So blessed, we have found that special place.” ……
    ……….. I like face/place as a rhyme, but it seems like ‘faces’ would be more appropriate, so I suggest [JUST a suggestion; maybe this will give you food for thought] either working the lines to allow face/place or faces/places.

    how about:

    “Swinging and twirling, with a smile on each face.
    ……………………………..place”

    OR

    “Swinging and twirling, with smiles on our faces.
    So blessed, we have found our special places.”

    but DON’T change “Swinging and twirling”; I love THAT.

    thanks for sharing. you may thank me now OR yell at me now.

    p.s. when you mentioned “entwine”, I thought maybe I should avert my eyes. (Report) Reply
