Romantic Valentines Day Poem

Honey, my feelings for you are no different than the day I wrote you this poem. Thank you for being my best friend throughout our marriage.

I Will Always Love You

© Richard M. Deets
I desire you when splinters of light appear
And the dew lazily joins morning sky.
When arias, pining birds to mates sing,
I want the soothing softness of your kiss.

I desire you when the sun centers the sky
And shadows hide beneath the soles of feet.
When butterflies dance among petals white,
I want the sparkle of your smiling eyes.

I desire you as the moon welcomes the night
And skies are flooded with twinkling bright stars.
When candles flicker their last silent breath,
I then want to feel your sensuous touch.

I desire you when passion swells all your soul
And your lovely face shines with radiance.
When your moist lips are full of love’s desire,
I want to feel every pulse of your heart.

I desire you when you are weary and down
And gray skies sprinkle droplets of sad tears.
When the world laughs at your every stumble,
I want to gently sooth your sorrows.

I desire you my love in every moment.
As time adds years like sands on the beach,
When you sense your beauty slipping to the wind,
I will want you so much more than now.

  • Hi my names Kara. I write poetry as well. I really liked this poem just because of the rhythm it has and the words go together nicely. When I grow up I want to become a poet. I think the soothing rhythms of poetry and just the beat it gives off is so relaxing. It makes me feel like a weight has been lifted off my soul and that's what your poem has done for me!! Thanks for the inspiration
