Baby Tell Me You Love Me - Poem by Asif Andalib

Baby tell me you like me
Like a poet likes poetry

Baby tell me you love me
Like a flower loves a bee

Baby tell me you need me
Like a river needs a sea

Baby tell me you want me
Like a monkey wants a tree

Baby tell me you miss me
Like a sad heart misses glee

    Cute, simple, but still able to evoke emotion. A pleasure to read. My favorite line is Baby tell me you need me like a river needs a sea. The next thought in my head was to flow into. The thought of someone needing you to flow into is very tender & denotes warm affection. I also like how this poem builds upon itself with like, love, need, want, miss. The natural progression of emotions s highlighted well. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
