Teach Me Forever Love

by Kate Demeree


Immersed in your eyes

Drinking my fill

Of honest emotion


Shyly I come to you

Hungry for what

You offer

Sincerely to me


Words inadequate

To describe thoughts


Kept bottled inside



Wanting to burst forth

As fingers trail

Over gentle, firm lips

Across rugged jaw

To frame the face

Of the man I love


Foolish willful child was I

Holding onto thin air

Lies and masks

Deceptions and deceiver

When I could have

Held you…


I have searched all my life for you

Until now…

When you found me

Hold me Love


Now and through eternity

Will I Honor and cherish you


You have taught me Love


I understand

At last

What it means to…





And Obey


Author's Note: To God... With Grateful Thanks for all the angels he has brought into my life as teachers. With special thanks for his bringing Gary into my life.

Wow! Dreamy, magical pixy dust to set us all down love's path. The font only adds to the effect. Well done!

I want to know, how is it possible in view of these words not to be loved honored cherished and yes, even obeyed. I love to obey love when it is pure, but love gives no command to obey but to be true.
