You Are The Tenderness


You are the tenderness 
that inspires me to write
of music and poetry -
and of love, and of life.

Yours is the gentleness
in who's arms I rest;
caressed by your beauty
in who's love I am blessed.

Yours are the words 
soft and sweetly spoken,
reassuring a heart that has
been neglected and broken.

Yours is the passion
my heart often needs -
a heart that lacks courage
as inside my body bleeds.

Yours is the graciousness;
a gentle, loving soul,
who has come into my life,
and made my body whole.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
