Navi

Though I'm not her father
I'll always take care of her
with intercession and prayer
And though ‘am not a good singer
I will sing to soothe her.

Every day and every night
I will comfort her with genuine love
Pray to God to make her feel alright
I'll treat her like a precious dove,
honor her today and respect her endlessly.

I will serve her all my life
From now on today
'til her hair turns grey
I will cultivate her lavishly
Water her with God's words
And help her produce good fruits.

    Good write. Your feelings show you have true love at heart and will always cherish it - even when older. Keep writing.

    Fantastic poem! :) A guy like that is perfect for a girl; respect, loving, caring, and a gentlemen. I'm sure you'll get her. :)

    I like this poem as it seems to play on words - at one point it can be the desire to value the one you love, on the other hand it seems to personify Mother Earth - and the desire to value her in nature.

    Love in words, love in action. This would come from the heart that really wants to give: for love is about giving.
    Great poem.

    Well, all in all, it's a good poem. There's feelings in it. Though I do have a question about the title. Why is it called 'navl'?
