Walk with me, though both of us
May wonder where we go.
Talk with me, explore, discuss
The things we may not know.

Sit with me, through anxious hours
Of waiting and of pain.
Stay with me, to share what’s ours
In sunshine and in rain.

Look at me and see beyond
What all the world can see.
Touch me, knowing I’ll respond
With warm felicity.

Love with me, when times are hard
And laughter wants to die.
Hold my heart with fond regard
More, as the years go by.

Walk and talk and sit and stay
And look and touch and love.
With me, make each passing day
Our blessing from above.

    Greetings Amy ma’am 🙂

    Every time that I read your poems, I am delighted. The poem is a perfect example of promises made to one’s beloved.

    The effect of ‘I Think I Like You Better Now’ still resonates in my mind.
