Poetry Solace: Of love and longing (I)

Continuing with more works from No One Can Stem the Tide by Jane Tyson Clement..

(16) Love and Longing

My dear, I do not love you as you think,
not half in mirth, nor briefly, but forever.
Grant me some power to mend my imperfections;
admit me strength to make one long endeavor.

I am not all the surface gloss you think;
I have a deep glow, too, if you would see.
I would give proof of faith and fearlessness
if you would only care, and turn to me.

Enjoy your weekend! Stay safe! :)
