The power of love is so strong, that nothing can ever destroy it... Especially if you have a lady in your life who makes your world full of joy and abscent of misery and pain. That special lady who you can't imagine life without, that lady who makes your whole world come alive with such wonder and beauty. As the quote goes, "Don't choose the one who is beautiful to the world... But rather, choose the one who makes your world beautiful."

You are my everything sweetheart,

You are my brightly shining star,

You are my beautiful darling,

And I love you just the way you are.

 

Your delicate smile does melt my heart,

Your sweet aroma gently caresses every part of my being,

Your loving embrace protects me from the evils of the world,

To me, having you by my side gives life a meaning.

 

To me you are not just my lover dearest sweetheart,

But you are my bestest friend,

One who I could trust with my life,

One to hold hands with until the very end.

 

I know that if worries of this world do rest weary upon my heart,

That you will always be there,

To offer your kind words and your angelic touch,

'Tis why there is no other lady who would quite compare.

 

When you are in pain,

It is I that does feel it too,

Because our love has bonded us together so closely,

I feel your heartbeat in mine when I lay beside you.

 

'Tis a joy each and every morning ,

When I awake to see your beautiful face,

Your tender kiss you place upon my cheek,

A lady of such wondrous grace.

 

I know that whatever obstacles life may throw at us,

We will face them together,

For nothing can hurt us when we are united,

Our friendship and love will last forever.

 

Never do I want to lose you my darling,

Because you are one of a kind,

No other lady could ever take your place,

For you are my guiding light and without you, I am blind.

 

And so I leave with you my sweetheart,

A tender touch upon your heart,

A delicate kiss upon your head,

Always know... That nothing will ever keep us apart.

 -- James William Cooper

Absolutely stunning! I'll be sure to let my girlfriend read this and tell her this is exactly how I feel when I think about her. This was beautiful.

Hi thumblina, I hope that you are okay? Thank you sooo much for pointing that out, I've just rectified that now so it should read 'beautiful darling' rather than 'beautiful daring.' Thank you for your lovely comment thumblina, as always it's really appreciated. :) All the very best to you.

nice poem, sounds real and rings true..
theres a good flow in the poem which overshadows the content because, james i think love is something every poet tries his hands on , myself included, but its never gonna be a cliché as long as we live, we love and its a feeling that is eternal. the basic idea of love is the same, it from the heart. how you pen down your feelings is totally a reflection of your understanding of love and the presentation of feelings. now , i enjoyed your poem but when i was done reading, i felt may be you could beautify it a little more. keeping it simple though is an art in itself, and i must say my friend you have mastered it.

Hello there awaneesh1strivingbard, I hope that you are okay? Thank you very much for your great comment, it really means a lot and it's nice to get some constructive feedback such as yours. Absolutely, I agree with you that love is an area of life that a lot of poets have a go at. Of course, love is a feeling that is and always will be eternal and the idea of love as you mention, is always the same because it is from the depths of our very hearts and you've raised a very good point... I guess that the way we write down our feelings is our very own interpretation of our understanding and experience of love in life. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the poem and I appreciate your comment with regards to maybe beautifying the poem a little. I'll bear that in mind definitely for any future poems. That's very kind of you my friend, thank you very much. :) I'll be sure to return the favour and read some of your work. All the very best to you. :)

Oh my gosh! This is such a beautiful poem, James! The way you have portrayed the feelings of how a man feels for his wife/girlfriend/love is absolutely stunning. I loved every word of this poem. Your writing style is flawless. My most favourite line was 'For you are my guiding light and without you, I am blind' this was definitely a very strong line with a lot of feelings behind it showing how much she means to him! Wow! I really loved this poem :) Great work, James! :) x

Hi Ikky, it's great to see you wonderful comment, they always bring a smile to my face. :) I really wanted the poem to convey the beauty of love and how a couple can be so connected in love and friendship and how that love exists not just on a physical level, but on a spiritual level as well. You are really kind Ikky, your comments are just a joy to read. :D Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by Ikky and have a read and leave a comment as well, it's always greatly appreciated. :) x

hey :) I'm so happy right now that I stumbled upon this poem :) I really like this one. The way you have a rhyme every few lines makes it easier to read and it's so full of love that I nearly feel it myself. I'm kinda inspired by it and that's one of the best things one can reach with his poems, I think...
thanks a lot for sharing this.
and btw: I love the quote you wrote before your own poem!Don't choose the one who is beautiful to the world... But rather, choose the one who makes your world beautiful. "Don't choose the one that beautiful to the world, but rather choose the one that makes your world beautiful." it's so true! do you know who said/ wrote it?
very good work!

Hi there quiet dreamer, I hope that you're okay? I'm pleased that you were able to come across the poem. :) I'm so happy that you liked it as well. This is a poem that I wanted to exude love and show just how powerful it is in life to all of us. I like to be able to write about love in such a way because to me, it is such a peaceful and encapsulating emotion that can really have a huge impact upon our lives. As the saying goes, 'love is what makes the world go round.' :) You're very welcome, I'm glad that I did share this poem with others, it's a real pleasure. Oh I'm pleased you liked the quote as well... I absolutely love quotes because I feel that they can teach us a lot about life and the world around us and can provide us with answers when we are lost and unsure where to turn. I tried having a look to see who wrote the quote but to no avail... So with ones that I'm unsure about with regards to the author, I simply put down 'Author Unknown' so this quote would fall into that category. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and have a read of my poem, it really means a lot to me so thank you. All the very best to you. :)

Hi Danni, I hope that you are okay? Aww, thank you so much for your lovely comment, it really means a lot to me. Well, I guess I wrote this with someone in mind, but I don't have a lady with who I wrote this to unfortunately. I guess that this is how I would feel if I had that special lady in my life to love and spend the joys of life with... Someone who would be that light at the end of the tunnel when everything looks bleak and dark. Love is such a beautiful force in our world and to find true love where both partners love each other for who they are, is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Thank you so much Danni for taking the time to have a look at my poem, I really appreciate it. :) Have a wonderful day and take care. :)

Hey Daisy Ink, I hope that you are okay? Aww, thank you soo much for your wonderful comment, it really means a lot to receive such nice comments. :) Absolutely, as you rightfully say, when we truly love someone for who they are and they become an integrel part of our lives, they soon become our everything and without them, life would be nothing but dull. Thank you very much for taking the time to have a look at my poem, it means a lot. Have a lovely day and take care. :)

I just don't get this. Not anymore. Love? Being there for each other? It all just makes me upset.

I'm really sorry if this did upset you Suzonne, it was not my intention at all. I think my interpretation of love is very clichéd and old-fashioned. It's such a shame that love isn't like this and of course, in reality love is very different with it's own obstacles and problems and issues. I like the idea that two people can share a genuine love for each other and always be there for one another and be connected not only physically, but spiritually as well. I didn't mean to upset you Suzonne and my apologies if I did. Thank you once again for stopping by and taking the time to have a read of my poem and comment too. x

The third stanza is so sweet! It made my heart jump with happiness. The last three stanzas are also magically written. You can always tell when someone has written something from the heart - it tugs at your own heart, you feel the poetry and the truth behind the words.
I wish there was a woman I woke up to who I felt this way for. For now, all I have are ghosts who have never lived the earth, who one day I hope to call my love.
Beautiful work, James.

I'm so happy that you enjoyed reading this piece Jeff, especially how the third stanza made your heart jump with happiness... Wow! I like all of my pieces to be written from the heart and it's really nice, when people are able to see that, and it tugs at the reader's own heart too.

I'm sure one day Jeff, you'll be with a lady who you will feel this way for, just keep believing and keep being you! :)

Thank you once again Jeff, your comments have brought such a smile to my face! :D
