I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you

If NDD does not object? You guys might try this one?

INTO MY OWN

One of my wishes is that those dark trees,
So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as 'twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto the edge of doom.
I should not be withheld but that some day
Into their vastness I should steal away,
Fearless of ever finding open land,
Or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

I do not see why I should e'er turn back,
Or those should not set forth upon my track
To overtake me, who should miss me here
And long to know if still I held them dear.

They would not find me changed from him they knew--
Only more sure of all I thought was true.

William Shakespeare - Sonnet #18

Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Okay, seeings how I was one of the "winners" of the 400th member guessing contest...

Your Name

I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it will stay.

- Jessica Blade -

Or how about;

All the love that history knows,
is said to be in every rose.
Yet all that could be found in two,
is less than what I feel for you.

Gypsy, I am right with you. That being said, so far, the poems from .45ACP are in a running tie with the Sonnet posted by The Reaper.

Who knew? :)

Holly I've no doubt that the Men here, when and where appropriate, are quite romantic. I'm enjoying the read especially the post by The Reaper. Can't go wrong with Shakespeare.

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrops, are waiting for thee;
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,
Lull'd by moonlight have all pass'd away.

Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
List while I woo thee with soft melody,
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me.

O' Beautiful Dreamer, awake unto me.

Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
Mermaids are chaunting the wild lorelie;
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me.

O' Beautiful Dreamer, awake unto me.

LOL. I came back to this forum to tell him I have been humming that tune since I read the lyrics and now I have to play some ear-splitting screaming junk to get it out of my head. :D

Nice one, Sdiver.

Oh, crap. Now my son is singing the tune with his own lyrics....


Wonderful dreamer, come unto me
Come to this dream world of hypocrisy
Come to this land where everyone's free
Just do not mess with the FCC


Look what you started. :confused:

I agree. I know there are many Quiet Professionals here, that can follow already set examples, like The Reaper; Shakespeare!

That's what I get for opening my mouth. I didn't even win the whole poll deal, I think I voted for a civilian. I make one comment on being corrupted from birth by AM and I get into a love poetry "post-off".

But anyway;But anyhow:

Love Me
by Sarah Teasdale

Brown-thrush singing all day long
In the leaves above me,
Take my love this April song,
"Love me, love me, love me!"

When he harkens what you say,
Bid him, lest he miss me,
Leave his work or leave his play,
And kiss me, kiss me, kiss me!

I guessed right, here's mine:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds

Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

----------
A guy called Bill wrote that.

That one takes a little thought, I've found.
It's very profound.

ok ok here's one for ya.


You been part of me since that first day.
You're in my thoughts and my dreams
You are in every breath I take
and every single move I make.

I see you when I close my eyes.
The way you look and how you move.
I know it is my love that I must prove.
Our joyful memories I will replay
And how much I love you in every way.

I know when you been in the room
By the fragrance of your presence.
I feel that time is of the essence.
Passion coursing through my veins.
Looking forward to the time that still remains.

You're in my thought in every way
In my mind, in the words I say
In my soul, in how I pray,

I am thankful for the day we met
I am sure that my love for you I will never regret..
You are the spirit of my love
and the passion that rains from above.

In my emotions that been freed
In the devotions to you I feed.

No, this is not the man I was
More the man that I want to be
To be there for you always to see.

And let the love within me grow
You are my monumental love I feel
And hidden feelings that I know.
The ones that I buried deep and let go

The soulful fountain of my heart.
That sprang forth from our desires could never let us part.

When I gazed upon your beauty
The mirror of my desires.
it started to burst my heart into a sonnet of fires.
Afraid to say I love you,
until you said you loved me first.
For fear of your feelings for me just burst.

Your name is etched upon my heart.
Your beauty in my eyes.
That is something I could not disguise.

Should I tell you how I feel
And let my love be revealed.
Like a gambler who shows emotion
Bets on the hearts of his potion.

From your lips the words flowed out
How I wanted to jump and shout.
You held me in your arms and
conformed me in your heart.

I stand in emotional Abyss
Scared you can't commit.
Wavering in my thoughts.
Will you say or will you not?

Living on love sweet potion
My heart raging like the ocean
I hear the echo of your words
And launch myself into motion.

You fit me like a perfect glove,
Your heart is the target of
all my love.
The unison of our devotion
deeper than the pacific ocean
