Permit Me

Permit me if you will
to hold your hands in mine
with our fingers all entwined.

Permit me if you will
to plant a chaste kiss on your cheek
for you to remember me by.

Permit me if you will
to hug you with all my might
and whisper a promise to your ear.

Permit me if you will
to love you like I’ve never loved before,
for you’re always in my thoughts, my sweet.

Permit me if you will
to say the words I’ve longed to utter,
“I will love you dearest for all eternity.”

  1. What a lovely old fashioned, romantic poem! It has a lovely structure, too, giving it that small, sweet flavour. I think maybe you have a typo in the second stanza, second line, (‘a chaste kiss’?) but who cares about that, I’m being pedantic! Keep up the good work!
