Bring Me Gifts - Poem by Suzanne Hayasaki

Bring me flowers
And I will display them in a vase
In the center of a single table
In an empty entryway
So that all can see
How lovely is your regard for me.

Bring me diamonds
And I will drape them around my slender neck
Above the plunging cut of a French gown
And glide through the crowds of a costume ball
So that all can see
How generous is your love for me.

Write me poetry
And I will embroider it upon my hoop
So that everyone who enters my drawing room
Can read in colorful calligraphy
How eloquent is your bid for me.

But sit beside me quietly
And look into my eyes with those blue jewels
And let the blood rush up your chest and neck
And let me sense your hesitation to speak
Or to reach out for me with those manly hands
And I will lead you silently
To someplace private
Where I can show you
How passionately I can share my love
With someone who gives me nothing but himself.

    A wonderful expression
    of realness and a pride
    of love

    you write from a real place,
    the heart,
    your poems are rare
    gems

    thanks for sharing
