Poem had all the words I have ever wanted to share with my fiance. He loves me so much that he tries to understand me. He thinks though that I always want to hear everything, when in fact, I just want to be touched by him at times. or looked at ny him. and most of all accepted by him. Everytime I read this through I am touched by the poem and I can sense his love through it. Humans love imperfectly, but it's enjoyable seeing us love with what we have. I give this poem 4. 6 Stars out of 5.

Times In Love

There are times when words arenít enough
feelings canít always be put into words;
because they are inadequate and often escape us
sometimes, there are only feelings.

There are times when all you need is a look;
a silent, wordless connection between souls
an understanding that needs no translation
a natural, knowing stare that says everything.

There are times when all you need is a touch;
nothing spoken - just the gesture of reaching out
touching, silently transferring your energy
conveying something that comes from within

There are times when all you need is acceptance
to know that you are valued as you are
that any changes you make only enhance you more
as you discover yourself.

There are times when all you need is love
no conditions or demands, only simplicity.
to know that for no reason at all
another chooses you over all others.
There are times when all you ever wanted,
was to be completed by another person.

There are times when you need all of these things
there are times when nothing else matters.

Thank you Sherri Anderson: I am alone tonight while my husband is away on busines. When he is gone I appreciate him more when he is not here. Absence makes the heart grown fonder. A simple to the point poem. Not too mushy. Just enough to show you were thinking of that special person. Thanks.

This is undoubtedly the best poem I have ever read, at least it speaks clearly of the kind of love my companion and I share. Knowing love in its purest and simplest form is all any of us should ever want or hope for. Keep up the great work
