TITLE: Romance I Must Confess

If my love for you were a celestial body, it would shine with a light, twice that of our sun

If my love for you were a molecular structure, it would be the breadth of the Milky Way

If my love for you could be expressed in terms of quantity,it would be larger than contents of any known universe

If my love for you could be expressed in jewels, it would be more valuable than all the jewels, ever insured by the Lloyd's of London

My love for you is like the nature of a homing pigeon, that flies off in the morning to touch the world, but ever returns to the place it calls home, until the day it cease to exist

If my love for you is not enough... I must confess, I only alerted you to, one-tenth of its potential

So as not to frighten you away.

Lovely poem! I thought the word "alerted" on the second to last line was an odd choice of word - would "revealed" work better?
Debbie OConnor12/13/04
Very good. I especially like the idea in the conclusion about God only giving us a glimpse of His love in order not to frighten us away.

Very valuable love. A sure treasure.

I just love this poem, short and lovely. I think the word "alerted" conjures up just what you want to express. Have a great Xmas and a Happy New Year.

GOD BLESS

This was a very nice poem. My favorite line: "My love for you is like the nature of a homing pigeon, that flies off in the morning to touch the world, but ever returns to the place it calls home, until the day it cease to exist" Wow. That's deep. Good job!
