Be my tattoo
There are so many people
That pass in and out of our lives
Most before we ever get to know them
And yet, there are those
Who leave a lasting impression
Like a tattoo they crawl under our skin
Becoming engrained there
A part of us
If you would allow me this
You are one of those people
Who have gotten inside my heart
And become part of my very soul
So much so that it's become difficult
To see where I leave off and you begin
I've known for quite some time now
That in order for me to live this life
You must be a part of it
Everyone knows that tattoos are forever
Something you must be sure you won't tire of
For it will be there as long as you live
So if you want one, you must be sure you love it
I love you, of that there is no doubt
Ever since we first met, I knew you were different
Someone special
You prove that whenever we talk
So with these words I am asking you
Would you be my tattoo, forever?
Stay with me, go wherever I go
I want you everywhere with me
Never again to be alone, always at my side
I will care for you, nurture you
Your color will remain sharp, never to fade
Stay with me until I breathe my last
 Never fade because you are my eternal one

This is one of those rare poems that makes the reader do a real slow "Yeah man" Brilliant, Henry.

~Henry ...when you told me you had an idea for a poem.....I knew it would be wonderful and loving and filled with absolute devotion.

And it is truly that and so much more.

I am a are authentic, genuine, real and so transparent with your heart. What a glorious gift to give to the one you love.


This gem made me think of one of my favorite biblical passages:


Place me like a seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm;

For love is as strong as death,
Its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
Like a mighty flame.

Many waters cannot quench love;
Rivers cannot wash it away. 
If one were to give

All the wealth of his house for love,
It would be utterly scorned.


*catching her breath*

A beautiful invitation, Henry........

Wonderfully expressed metaphorical poetry.

Beautiful, do you keep that positive courage in love so consistently?


Comment By: FreeGlata on August 4, 2009 06:54:44 AM Report
Wow, Henry!!!! Yeah, there's that "WOW!" again :o)

This is absolutely one of your best, most expressive writes of love to date. I don't think that anyone could ever mistake your feelings for them when they are so clear!

To be your tattoo...How could the one you love ever have a single doubt?

Simply beautiful, Henry. What a heart you have! and what an amazing ability you have at expressing it!

Hugs...sappy sighs...hugs...(grin)
