Tell Me Again

Tell Me Again

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

 

 

Tell me again…

of how you could never leave me -

how the mere perfection of such a love as this

may never come again

Tell me how to forget

the magnificence of this moment -

how the symmetry of our bodies together

will outlast the brilliance of the stars in the sky

 

And if I fail to remember,

forever being lost in your eyes

…tell me again

Short but sweet, I think we all crave that validation. Tell me you love me, tell me we will work. You made it very romantic and tender, very well written.

Beautiful beyond words, Kelly. "If I fail to ever remember being lost in your eyes" tells it all.

You are so dear to comment - thank you, Dara!
I could read this two ways...'tell me how to forget' suggests to me this one didn't last and you need a spoonful of sugar to get it down....either way, it's golden Kelly.
