Not Just Tonight - Poem by Perry Biggerstaff

Not just tonight …but something forever.
Not just a part…but rather the whole.
Not just mere words…casually spoken,
but rather a promise...from heart and soul.

Not just a wife…but my companion.
Not just for now….but through years and years.
Not just a feeling…or fleeting emotion,
but one spoken through heartfelt grateful tears.

Not just a touch…but something far deeper.
Not just a kiss…but one filled with love.
Not just a life…lived for the moment,
but rather the life I've always dreamed of.

    I like the framework for this poem- the format goes hand in glove with the message. Romantic, emotionally stirring, a feeling that we are listening in to the musings of a man in love (Report) Reply
