I Know That I Love You…2409 - Poem by saadat tahir

I know that I love you, my dear, yes!
Oh you name! …Lord thee bless!

works with the infirm, comes home late,
A role she plays, ordained by fate.
Study the tomes, all night long.
So can cut through, many a thong.
Pops a pill, to sack it late,
across the bed, a pile of hate.

Few snatched moments, on the line.
Scarcely if ever; a quaff of wine.
Long now forgotten, is out to dine,
weekends trudge, stringing laundry line.
Oh! Loved the firs and rustling pines
Cutting through wrists are daunting twines

I know that I love you, my dear, yes!
Oh you name! …Lord thee bless!

In a far off land only a name resides.
Hardly if ever the time coincides.
But a hope is kindled and kept alive.
A direction and path along which to strive.
Mops up home that's really not hers.
Nor was she ever gifted any furs.

A sweet simple girl, inside resides.
Needs an arm to hold and hide.
Who'll softly touch in a caring squeeze.
Who'll walk her along on the beech.
Look deep in her eyes and say not a bit.
Make her smile by his beam and wit.

I know that I love you, my dear, yes!
Oh you name! …Lord thee bless!

    i don't care much (usually) for love poems, but this is a fine one. some of the English perhaps could 'use some tweaking'. beech is a tree. you want beach. ha ha! maybe it was just a typo. i really enjoyed the rhyming.

    good one. bri :)

    Oh wow you seem like a tender, softhearted and gentle poet! Such an amazing writing style.. like a lullaby that could make its readers go into the deepest sound sleep for hours and hours... I felt like reading a Persian poet with profound fluency and.. I'm speechless. I loved the read! ! A huge 10++ (Report)Reply

    You touched a nerve and a need so deeply that a wide array of readers - including myself - found this to be a
    wonderful love poem. I like two things especially: the tenderness of the language which maintains a hushed respect for the beloved, never breaking thr romantic mood, and second, that you treat this prospective partner as an individual with the integrity of her personhood. It's the peropwe base for love to flourish. (Mine is comment 35! !)

    it's a nice poem with gushing emotions. But The concept of a 'simple girl who needs a protective arm, soft touch, and silent understanding' must change. All over the world, it is now widely understood that if you keep the women subjugated, the whole sociery remains crippled. (Report)Reply
