Only You - Poem by Linda Ori

If I could choose a loving heart
To compliment my own,
If I could choose a smiling face
The sweetest I have known,
If I could choose a caring soul
To understand my ways -
I know it would be you;

If I could ask for tenderness
To soothe my troubled mind,
If I could ask for honesty
Complete and unrefined,
If I could ask for loyalty
No matter what the price -
Then I would ask for you;

If I could dream of paradise
Within a warm embrace,
If I could dream of drowning
In the sweetness of a face,
If I could dream of passion
To last a lifetime through -
Then I would dream of you;

For you are all the wonders
That I would ever know,
And you are all the feelings
That I would ever show,
For no one else completes me
Or compliments my soul -
And I thank God for you.

A wedding poem for my best friend's daughter.

    Coincidence is really great sometimes;
    ... just as I started to read this,
    (Satellite radio in the background!) ,
    ... the 'Righteous Brothers ' started singing
    something about hearts and inspiration !
