Gentle Minds

I have a love that seems to know
The poems of my mind
She says that when she thinks of me
All that she can find
Is kindness, love and gentle words
and ways, of gentle men
I wish to take her with my soul
and know her love again.
She knows that in the hearts of men
are passion and desires
In ordinary lives exist
Secluded, different fires
So dare I let my soul reveal
The wonts and woes of all?
For man is never perfect, love
So shall I tell her all?

Yes.
I have a love
that seems to know
The poems of my mind.

    Nice to see a ballad style poem of yours Raymond, and very poetic too, I must say.

    Love the lines …

    ‘I wish to take her with my soul
    and know her love again.’
