Best that I can

Another february 14th, i awake with pride
What a feeling, you by my side
Still relish this relationship we began
I ll love you the best that i can

It was love at first sight and something more
I needed to have you, I was damn sure
How the words came out, still cant tell
How you said ‘No’ still rings a bell

‘You re supposed to think about it’ i said
You let out a laugh, that response was weird
‘ping me’ you replied passing me a note
Though suprised, mine i hurriedly wrote

The remarkable dates that followed
Your love, your willingness to stay you showed
The way i felt wrapped in your arms
Your tender touch and your comely charms

The arguments are always shortlived
Your arms around me and i feel relieved
It reminds me of How silly i ve been
We joke, we play, forgiving and forgetting everything

Always grateful each time i give you a gift
It puzzles me, you would love me without it
What is mine is yours, everything we share
I love you and i truly care

Our friends get hurt and break up
Yet we re firm, still rising to the top
Its evident in every thing you do
More things to point to, makes me love you

‘shh!…..dont wake up just yet’
My queen, the prettiest i ve ever met
Promise to stay, always be your man
Loving you the best that i can

    1. You also read my mind there @gooseberry. Too much love poem for a poet makes the muse too light and less serious. But then I enjoyed it bro, at least for the Valentine season. Happy Valentine jare!
