GIVE SONG

GIVE SONG

 

Songs of love are many

some for a dime, some for a penny

the price of my song

there just Ain’t any

it's all I can give to you.

 

I love you for what you are

I love you for what you'll be

your love shines bright

like a star

I love the love you give to me.

 

many miles that I may travel

travel far and wide

there is nothing like

the love I feel

as I lay here by your side.

 

your quiet smile, your gentle touch

my little one

I love you so much. and

it's all I can give to you.

 

I love you for what you are

I love you for what you'll be

your love shines bright

like a star

I love the love you give to me.

 

all that I have can be yours

my love

my world, my life

the sky above, but

to make these real

I need you love

for that's all I can give to you

 

I love you for what you are

I love you for what you'll be

never will I own you

nor will you own me

but the love we share together

like the stars will last forever

and that's all we can give each other

 

I love you for what you are

I love you for what you'll be

your love shines bright

like a star

I love the love you give to me.

 

R M Livingston  1979

Lovely heartfelt poem.You put a lot of work into It.A few of the lines remind me of any early Carl Sandburg poem.

Again, Penname speaks the truth. This would make a wonderful song. And I see some similarties with my poem "Your Side OF The Stars". Great minds think alike and this shows you do have one.
