Fear for a First Love

I see the love you have my dear
in the eyes with which you see
Devotion and understanding there
but are you missing that which is me


Passion and devotion hand in hand
For you my darling is free
But do you understand the love
trapped in my heart for thee


The stars in the sky
shine down from above
and light the passion
fire of our love

I pray that which I feel for you
deep within my heart
is strong enough my darling dear
to see we never part
I fear, my love
some day you’ll see
the lack I know within
and you will set me free
<<< Response poem in an AllPoetry contest.  Poem was in response to this poem.  I don’t usually try to do a rhyme sequence, but it didn’t turn out as badly as I was worried it would>>
