DO YOU R E A L L Y LOVE ME?” a poem December 27, 2019 (Friday)

[Limerick:  TODAY is the rest of your life /  Thank GOD if you’ve got you a wife / And, especially when /  She’s a sweet, outdoor hen  /   Who chasesYou withHer carving knife.]

Do you hear THE QUESTION   often  through the week?

“DO YOU REALLY LOVE ME?”  ’til  it makes you freak?

The one who’s asking (obviously)  has the question on HER (his) MIND,

And may not even be too sure    if asking it’s      that kind,

But  can not   help  HERSELF (himself);  the question  “pushes out.”

You hear IT.  Do you laugh at it?    or does it make you pout?

Is it just rhetorical?  IT MAYBE HAS NO ANSWER,

Especially when each of us tends to    treat SWEET LOVE  like cancer,

And each of us has our own definition   of what WE THINK LOVE IS,

Or   WE HAVE NO IDEA, and we’re in the middle of “a tiz,”

Because we CAN’T IMAGINE    our LOVER    could REALLY love us,

When we maybe don’t think we love ourselves, so we want to make a fuss,

And see what HER (his) reaction is, so who knows why we ask.

May I suggest that, perhaps, WHAT LOVE IS  may be MY blessed task.

Well, (here it is) when you think about HER (him)  do you feel funny?

Is SHE (he) someone you really care about?  Would you give all your money,

Just to see HER (him) happy?  Are you quite excited,

By just hearing HER (his) sweet voice  or even being invited,

To spend a few, fine moments gazing deeply into HER (his) eyes?

When you wake up in the morning  are you met with the surprise,

That someone   YES, so elegant and beautiful and kind,

Loves YOU or even says they do, and they’re gentle on your mind?

Or   maybe your mind is sparkling with passion and your heart is beating true.

IF SO, I think that you can safely say these words: “I’m crazy in love with you.”

And, when your Sweet Beloved asks you FOR   THE MILLION th   time,

“Do you REALLY LOVE ME?”   Well, you can write a rhyme,

One of your own   just to say, “I LOVE YOU; YES, I DO.”

“Love is quite an amazing feeling; say, say this: “Yes, (pause) I love you too.”


I make this solemn promise my love


To be your lover when you need to be loved, your doctor when you’re ill, your army when you go to war, your umbrella when the rain pour down on you, your rock when you are weary, your shield when you need defence, your spirt when you are drained, your pillow when need rest, your voice when nobody can hear you. I can promise you my everlasting devotion, my loyalty, my respect and my unconditional love into eternity’s blissful heavens of two souls in love. Nothing will separate us.

Limerick:  The woman of my dreams ISN’T HERE / ‘Cause, when others attack me, it’s clear, /  Since they give me no rise / Even if they kiss me between the eyes / THE ONLY ONE FOR ME   is YOU, Dear.
