You know when you've found her, and wish to show you care? I found mine, and had to show her my caring feelings, and the best way to do so is through a poem.

If I Could Compare You..

© James Jennings

I wish to compare you to all the best, it all seems so cliché,
All the best "compare's" are taken, so now I fall into deep thought.
To a rose, your petals blue, your scent is so subliminal,
A sunset to as well, your colors blend so very perfectly.
To the first breath a child takes, fresh from the womb,
You are the first breath I take, morning, night and noon.
I say this not, for saying's sake, or to gain your love,
I say this all to show my love, to convey my heart, toward a dove.
Through the peaks of our love, and the valleys of our pain,
You showed me how to live not in the purity of vain.
You have become my heart, my soul, my brain.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can't compare you to others,
Moreover I compare others to you.
