To One Fine Man ~ love poetry

By Melanie Dorsey

To One Fine Man
You fell in love with a girl who had dreams
Wearing a teal dress with a big wide bow.
You know the one.
You’ve told me so.

To One Fine Man
Who gives me room to breathe and think,
Even when my thoughts and words crowd yours.
Tease me, smile my way and wink.
Days, months, years
In cash flow and red ink.
Big laughs,
Giant tears.

To One Fine Man
Smoothed my hair and held me close,
Prayed me through when shadows rose.
Now you shoulder your load and mine,
Richer, pure love over time.

To One Fine Man
Who loves this woman
Who spins big dreams
With words in song, prayer, poetry
Come, lie awhile and spin with me.

  15. Melaine:

    I was not able to view the video [slow dial-up] ugh!! But the words of your poem say it all
    especially these two lines:
    "Now you shoulder your load and mine,
    Richer, pure love over time."

    You are exactly where God wants you to be with your man. I cried tears of JOY when I read this poem. I'm so thankful that God has given you a wonderful man to hold you in his arms and share this burden and sacred adventure with you! He is GOOD! He is FAITHFUL!

    He's pouring IN - you're pouring OUT! That's the HEART of our God at work!

    Choosing JOY, Stephanie
    JESUS ONLY in 2010
