'You' Poem by Bernard Snyder

'You'

Rating: 3.1


I've sailed around the world twice






I've sailed around the world twice
I've swam in the Caribbean seas
I've seen the sunset over many beaches
I've even dated celebrities,
I've shaken hands with former presidents
I've been taken to places I hardly knew,
but nothing was ever so breath-taking
than the day I first saw you,
not only were you so beautiful
you spoke with such eloquence
in all my worldly travels
I haven't met anyone like you since
I've been asked many times
what had the most memorable view
I've seen a lot of fascinating things
but nothing as captivating as you.

Ah.......it amusing and lovely inked.. :) You traveled in many places and met many great people but when someone travel a feeling in your heart, it made you heart filled more in emotions, sweet emotion..Now i believe you completing all traveling around the world and found the most fascinating one, you can swim deep in feelings, you could feel the breeze and wave without a beach spell, even a closer heart than any people...the one you called 'You' actually the whole package of world tour..i am sure you traveled anywhere with that special 'You' without move even crossing the time..LOve it..this so beautiful and lovely poetry _Unwritten Soul
