Love You More

“This is the first time I’ve ever ‘guested’ on a blog. So first of all, thank you to this wonderful blog’s host for allowing me to scatter my words across her pages. I wrote this today, and a weakness of mine is thinking my words will never be read or aren’t good enough. Hopefully you’ll find this a good read.” Simon

Take me dear and lead me on
Through willows where you roam,
Along the paths of memory
With secrets all alone,
For if I am to love you more
These things I should be shown.

Take me dear with gentle hand
And show me where you go,
The secret places behind the dreams
Beneath the rivers flow,
For if I am to love you more
These things I need to know.

Take me dear along with you
Across the fields and loam,
Underneath the purple sky
With wishes richly sewn,
For if I am to love you more
Such flowers should be grown.

Take me dear with arm in arm
We’ll bask in summers glow,
To tell me stories of your past
In whispers sweet and low,
For if I am to love you more
Such truths they should be so

Take me dear, my trust is yours
This heart so made of stone,
For though its hard and tainted so
It’s willing to atone,
And if you are to love me dear
This heart is yours to own.

    1. Thank you my friend. People may think I do the whole self deprecating thing on purpose, but I honestly don’t. I have a self confidence issue that, believe me, I am working on to try and resolve. Such kind words of support from the wonderful people in this community, you included, really make me feel like my words have some worth, so thank you.

  1. So chuffed, Simon that you wrote this poem specially for guesting today. It’s truly lovely and I’m honoured to have it on my blog. Any time, as Scott said. Tomorrow?! 😉 I got my first 2000+ down. Yay! Great to know my blog was in safe hands. Thank you.
