Romantic


From a distance you insisted,
I uncover my heart...
To express feelings felt.
You wanted to release it,
From its freeze.
One I chose to hide...
But,
My heart...
You wanted it to melt.

And for you it did.

You are so romantic.
Free you are of tricks,
And antics.
So natural does this feel to me.
As if it's meant for us to be...
Romantic.

Closed no more for wishes to kiss.
Welcome now I do,
To be held like this.
And wanting nothing more...
But to share more of it.

A collection of bruises I stored and kept.
And wept and treasured my emptiness...
I guess.
But did not know this was wrong.
Until you came along.

From a distance you insisted,
I uncover my heart...
To express feelings felt.
And for you it did.
And...
For you,
It did!
My tears I cry...
Are happy you can dry them.

You are so romantic.
Free you are of tricks,
And antics.
So natural does this feel to me.
As if it's meant for us to be...
Romantic.
As if it's meant for us to be...
Enchanted.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
