Love Me Once Forever - Poem by Daniel Lloyd Kennedy

I dream of nothing else, I live for nothing less
The love I've always fostered, A love you don't request
My love for you grows stronger, Each day that passes by
I long to be beside you, If not I'll surely die

Will love as strong as this my love, Turn ere your love for me
I know this much to tell you, My love will not ere sway
I'll love you more tomorrow, Than all of the other days
I need to see your smile, my love, Your gentle loving ways

Help me build tomorrows, I need them all today
Give to me your morrows, I'll pay with all my days
Say you'll love me always, I'll do the same today
Love me once forever, I love you more each day

    I go to a high school in Tampa, Fl. and I was just recently assigned to do a project with 3 other people. We couldn't find any poem that we all agreed to perform....until we came to yours. We chose your poem to perform because it touched all of us. If this was just a poem that you decided to do for 2-14-01 then you should write a poem for every holiday.....
    Luv, Sally Nesmith
