For The Man That I Love - Poem by Aphrodite Anastasia Menegaki

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
There as I stare the world far away
All that I see can't say

Over the seas, mountains and trees
Oceans of hope and lies
All that I wish, all that I long
All that he can't disguise

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
There as I hear his song far away
All that I feel can't say

Write him a note, write him a poem
Write him now all I feel
Letter of love, maybe of hope
What my heart should conceal

Hear one by one all sounds of this land
Reaching the sea and skies
Hear now my heart that's beating so fast
Hoping to see his eyes

Write him a note, write him a poem
Write him now all I feel
He might ignore, he might not care
What my heart will reveal

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
Hope that his voice could once sing for me
Say, could that man love me? …

    Write me a song for the man that I love
    Say, could his heart be mine?
    There as I stare the world far away
    All that I see can't say- - - - -
    - - - - - - - A fine expression of restless heart, being away from the lover, questioning oneself- Does he love me? Does he know my love for him? How I wish he knew my love? Oh sky, oh river, oh wind, just tell him about my love.
    Perhaps this poem inspired Daniel Brick to write A Song for the Man I love.

    For the man...
    you almost tempted me into writing a poem... :)
    quite a tantalizing and appealing poem...
    a nit of a dilemma... but thats what life is...

    there is bit of intensity...a bit of wistfulness.. a bit of feminine restraint...and yes... a bit of red...thumbs

    contextually and content wise... poetic and nicely put...

    Your poem depicts the innocence and intense love of the young, the underlying hope of having someone's love in return to call your own. Very well illustrated through your words, it was like a video in my mind, where I could see and feel the emotions and feelings coming from your heart. Wonderfully brilliant poem, Aphrodite! 10++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Once again on the poem.The agony of the simmering soul out of flaming love is expressed effectively by the repetition of the same question, which at the end by a slight alteration expresses by the sames time the wish for the mutual feeling so that this lobe be the ideal love ecpected by any creature in the world.The incoherent syntax used gives you the impression of the hurrying soul, heart to reach what she mostly ecpectsas soon as possible, that is why prefered to be analogous.

    Every time I come back and read this poem which impressed me from ''first sight', I do realize that I have been fallen in love with it {who ever loved who did not love from first sight? ].In the simplest, physical way it pictures the tenderness of a simmering soul living the passionate agony of its expectations, Just to know, just to know, nothing else, only the hope, the hope only, a passion bejond common love affairs, the love of love, just to see it existing, or better to get a sign that something great as hoped may, may happen.It would be enough for the innocent soul which opens wings to the heavens of ideal mutual feelings.In my life I can not remember a text like that describing the shivering of a soul except that of Plato in Symposion but being a prose it does not what does your poem, dear Aphroite, it makes you feel the feeling it is painting in front of your soul.It will be loved by everyone who will have the privilege to read it.

    Mr Galanis, there are 1000s of extremely well expressed romantic poems written in the Greek language, by skillful classical and modern writers. The Symposium by Plato, does not describe the shivering of a soul as you have claimed but a place of entertainment and philosophical discussion. The present poem belongs to the category of prose, too, as well as your own compositions do. All not metrical compositions, sir, are called prose.

    Dear Mr.Galanis, I read your comment again and again, and I can hardly find the words to thank you enough for your wonderfully encouraging and poetic comment… Not only you’ve caught the very essence of the poem but you’ve also looked into the heart of its author. It truly honours me. Thank you! ! Thank you so much! !
