Can You Make Me Believe?


Show me that you love me
But do not speak a word
Show me that you long for me
Without a sound being heard

Let your eyes seduce me
Entice me with your stare
Lovingly caress me
Let you hands show you care

Show me that you love me
Let your body language talk
Anyone can speak the words
But can you walk the walk?

Let your passion connect me
To the love your offering tonight
Share your true intentions
Baby, let’s do this right

Show me that you love me
Wear your heart upon your sleeve
Silent without words
Can you make me believe?

    This is much the best of yours that I've read so far, probably becuase it comes out of your own experience and feelings and doesn't read like a re-hash of the Romantics.
    One suggestion: change your offering to you offer unless you feel this makes the rhythm too obvious. (Report) Reply

    Much can be spoken in silence. Your last lines are especially
    poignant.10, for you.

    Warm regards,

    I do not need to say I love you!
    Can you not see love light in mine eyes?
    The windows of my soul, I cannot disguise
    As I listen to your voice, I hang on to every word
    its the sweetest music that I have ever heard
    As I gently touch your face, forces come to play
    As beautiful as a mountain stream up on a summers day
    My breathing is so shallow I can feel your body heat
    In unison together my heart takes up the beat
    No words that I can utter none wrote that's so divine
    Is the look of love, from a man, a love such as mine.

    Lovely poem Wendy, sorry i got inspired! (Report) Reply
