By Being You. - Poem by Lisa Cresswell Wilkinson

Because you are you
I can be me
I can say what I want, what I feel
I can wear what I like
Knowing you will like it too
I dont have to hide what I feel deep down
No matter how daft things might sound
I can speak my mind when you're around
I know you understand me
Why I feel the way I do
and for what reasons I might do the things I sometimes do
I know that when I am sad you are sad too
You trust me inevitably
and I trust you in return
You take me for the person I am and learn the things I learn
You love me with all that you have
You give me with all that you give
But most of all my darling
You make me want to live

    Lisa, for some reason the vote meter disappeared the first time I read this, so I came back and gave it the 10 it deserves.

    Lisa, the rhythm and rhyme is so perfect is dances along as you read this. Just beautiful. I loved it from the first word through to the last. Romance is not dead in this piece, but alive and kicking. Great write. Top Marks if I could give it. Thanks for sharing it.
