I'm worth it...because of you

I'm worth it...because of you

A Poem by Jack...

 

 

I’m worth it…because of you

 

Of worth, I wonder, oh I plead

This man of very simple means

Alone in truth my love does bear

If only you were here with me

 ~

A tiny touch of fingertips

Invokes desire to my glow

A brush against your supple lips

My blood a’ boil, starts to flow

 ~

So tight within your arms I see

My place, the world I long to share

O’ cast of shimmering moon beam

Now shines upon your autumn hair

 ~

Of eyes so dark, intense thy form

In prayers ago, to find me true

Cold winters fierce, I’ll keep you warm

To cry, I’m so in love with you

 ~

So am I worth what I so need

I stand before this evening light

With scars where once my life did bleed

An anguished soul of sorted sight

 ~

To dream in darkness shedding fear

Till death does come to find my day

I’m worth it if your love is near

Within my heart along the way

WOOOW! LOOOVE this! Beeeautiful and as is written too. Another one worthy of a #1 bestseller. Not that some others aren't worthy of this said either, but a GREAT way to start the day and from having been gone for a bit. I know all too well this on some parts. Not that I ever thought I wasn't ever worthy of such love. It's sooo wonderful to have this kind of love when you have it. Others better watch out, hmm... lol.

Another beauty, Jack.

Of eyes so dark, intense thy form
In prayers ago, to find me true
Cold winters fierce, I’ll keep you warm
To cry, I’m so in love with you

How wonderful when two souls can offer each other so much.

Thanks so very much Pryde. It is a wonderful feeling.
Beautiful, especially that last stanza. That actually brought a lump to my throat, Jack. Our worth is measured in love - given and received... Stunning write.

Thank you so very much Poppy.
To have and know self-worth is one thing, but to know the one you love finds you of worth and real value, that feeling cannot be topped. Of course, when that person doesn't find you worthy it's a kicker, too.
A heartfelt read, Jack. You are a true romantic poet.
