Baby tell me you love me


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

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
