All It Takes - Poem by Kenneth Davis

All It Takes by Kenny Davis

I don’t have to sleep with you
To know or show that I love you
All it takes is a kiss from your gentle lips and I fall in love again
So much so that it carries me back to where it all began

The first time we crossed paths
I couldn’t help, but to give your beauty a glance
All it took was the shine of your smile and the glimmer in your eyes
from that moment on I was swept up in the romance

Call it love at first sight
Or a destined attraction
All it takes is the soft sound of your voice
To lose my mind because of the distraction

Whether I call hearing your voice, music to my ears
Or a blessed melody of angels
That’s all it takes
To get my mind and emotions for you all tangled

What is it about your shimmering eyes?
That twinkles brighter than the North Star in the midnight skies
I mean all it takes from them are a glance or two
To make me come running back to you

What can I say?
You got it all and so much more
Enough to get a good man down to his knees
Here on the floor, to say “THANK YOU, LORD”

Who knew that all it took
Was a prayer from me?
To make a stubborn, fearful man
Get down on his knees

Not only to give thanks
And praises to the lord above
But to declare that it is this woman
He so richly loves

You now know all it took
To send my heart for a ride
But what would it take
To be the man by your side

Flowers? Candy?
Or Jewelry perhaps?
Or maybe a gift box
So tightly and neatly wrapped?




A date on a beach?
Or a serenade, if you will?
Or a romantic restaurant
Where I’ll gladly pay the bill?

What would it take
To get next to you
An email? A phone call?
Or a text or two?

What would it take
To get you in my arms?
My wit? My humor?
My intelligence? Or my charm?

What does it take
To get under your skin
To get to know the beauty
Dwelling from within

Whatever it takes
Just give me a sign
I might not always get it right
But I will always try

To win your heart
The way you have won mine
Despite if I ever get yours
Mines will always be yours until the end of time

Whatever it takes
I’ll always be there
Whenever or where ever you need me
Because I’ll always care

While all I ever wanted
Was for our friendship to transcend
You always made it clear
That all you wanted to be was friends

To have you in my life
I am willing to do all it takes
Even though I might stumble
And make a few mistakes

Let me know what you want from me
All you have to do is ask
My affection for you is more than enough
To withstand the most difficult of tasks

Now I know I might not be
The man of your dreams
But I promise you I would spend
The rest of my life to strive to be

All I ask is for a chance
To prove you wrong
All it would take is an opportunity
To prove that my love for you is strong
