Let Me Love You


You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,
Now there is nothing I fear

I ceased breathing
The moment I beheld you.

The words that you once gave me
Keep my breath going on forever.

When I grieved, you solaced me,
With all hopes for a better future.

I've never met the likeness of you before.
And I'm sure I never will.

For you are unique and
the only one of your kind.

Far be it from me
To hurt you.

But let me love you
With all the love I've
Left in my heart.

    For a teen age girl whose mother tongue is not English, this poem is well written. The free flow of thoughts about love is remarkable. Keep writing, Emily. (Report) Reply

    someone here has mentioned that your poem sounds cliche, and i agree, but i have something more to say about this - first, you are young, and Love is usually the inner theme of life for all young people. So i can't blame you for writing about love, and it's nice that you express it in a poem, rather than just say, I love you to the person you're writing about - I have read a lot of my old poems from when i was 18 and i thought them so terribly childish that i just put them in a box, never to be read by anyone again - this isn't a bad poem for someone your age, but you will write more, get older, find your voice, and in ten years you will have advanced so much that when you re-read this it will seem very novice to you - if you read poets like Teasdale and Neruda, you will get an idea of how to write a good love poem without it sounding cliche - and even Teasdale with all her brilliance still made the same mistake sometimes - that all said, thanks for sharing your work with everyone!

    This is a bit too conventional to the point of being a little on the side of cliche poetry. Poems of this kind have been writtne by the thousands than to make one that stands out is quite a task.

    I applaud you for the difficulty you tried to overcome so i give you an A for trying. (Report) Reply
