Ready For Love

Take my hand and lead the way;
tell me all you want to say.
Whisper softly in my ear,
all those things I want to hear.
Kiss my lips and touch my skin;
bring out passions deep within.
Pull me close and hold me near;
take away my pain and fear.
In the darkness of the night,
be my beacon, shine your light.
In the brightness of the sun,
show me that you are the one.
Give me wings so I can fly;
for I can soar when you're nearby.
Enter my heart, break down the wall,
it's time for me to watch it fall.
I've been a prisoner, can't you see?
Break my chains and set me free.
Strip me of my armor tight;
you'll find I won't put up a fight.
Release my soul held deep within . . .
I'm ready now, let love begin.

I love to read poems. I really enjoyed Ruths' poem. I got chills when I read it. The poem makes you think of someone who was hurt in a love before and now they are ready. I thought it was so cool that this was the first poem I read because i felt like I had a wall built up around my heart too. I was also living in emotional pain and fear. Now I am ready to love again. That is a wonderful poem. I will never forget the day I got on the computer and read, Ready for Love, and my whole day was filled with joy and happiness.
