History[ edit ] The oldest love poem. Sumerian terracotta tablet from Nippur, Iraq.
Suga you gave me this nickname A promise Baby, we may not be the best of what we are, we may not talk often. I just want you to know that no matter how difficult things can be In the long run You will still have me.
Mannie This heartache I just can't explain, All I ever feel is pain, That passion I long for true love for real, His gentle caressing what I long to feel, A love that when we are together we'd rather die than be apart, A love that when our lips meet I can feel the kiss from his heart.
I'll wait forever to have this special love, I'll even wait for all eternity in the heavens above, All this waiting for him may cause me pain and strife, But I'll wait, because this love comes once in a life.
Lucia I wonder why do I love you when it was all just a feeling? Why don't I just stop dreaming, for it's just a feeling and nothing more.
I didn't want to love you when I knew there wasn't going to be any exits. Now I have to hold on since I was the one who invented this passion.
I told myself that I wasn't ready, for love is not a game. I guess I should just pretend that I was dreaming. But how can I close my heart to things I don't want to feel Meghh I wish you the courage to be warm when the world would prefer that you be cool.
I wish you success sufficient to your needs, I wish you failure to temper that success. I wish you joy in all your day, I wish you sadness so that you may better measure joy.
I wish you gladness to overbalance grief. I wish you a humor and a twinkle in the eye. I wish you glory and the strength to bear its burdens.
I wish you sunshine on your path and storms to season your journey I wish you peace in the world in which you live and in the smallest corner of the heart where truth is kept.
I wish you faith to help define your living and your life.
More I cannot wish you except perhaps love to make all the rest worthwhile. Mohammed I cannot promise you a lifetime or even a day, For my days and yours are bound to others through a life time commitment.
What I can offer is simply For whatever amount of time we can steal. I offer you laughter for laughter is beauty. I offer you honesty as honesty is pure.
I offer you patience as patience is needed to gain trust. I offer sincerity for through my sincerity I will show you my inner being and desires All I ask in return is for you to be honest and open for through your honesty and openness I will receive from you all that I offer.Salt Heart Kate Dayton 6 x 9, 84 pages, $16 Ostensibly a book of poems about sailing, islands, oceans, and, yes, salt, Kate Dayton’s spare, and sometimes almost surreal imagery conjures the tissue of lives that continue in the midst of devastating losses.
