Lean On Me

Lean On Me

My sweet angel, my darling, my dear,
Your sadness and sorrow is ever so near.
I see your smile so bold, so brave.
I see your pain so dark so grave.

You grieve, you mourn, a love that’s Past.
Over your life its pall has cast,
Like so many outstanding and unpaid debts.
So many mistakes and so many regrets!

You carry with you an endless spate,
Of sorrow, remorse and self-hate!
A brave woman who stands alone,
Who longs to lean, but can’t go home.

I can help to bear all that weight,
I’ll pull you from this dreary state.
Come, lean on me! As you take each stride;
My back is broad, my shoulders wide.

I can hold you and shoulder this heavy cross.
To me you’d be no Albatross!
Always know that I’m at your side.
My back is broad, my shoulders wide.

Perhaps in time you’ll come to see
That my love and devotion is a sturdy tree,
And then with love and deep affection
We begin a life of loving perfection.

So come, hold on with all your might!
Like a stallion I’ll bear you through the night,
Into the daybreak on the other side.
My back is broad, my shoulders wide.

  WOW! WOW! WOW! The love of such a man as the one described in this write is, well words just cannot say. A woman would have to show a man how she feels and how thankful she is to have him love her in such a way...Never, Never should she take this man for granted! BUT, shower him with the love he deserves...
Steve, you have outdid yourself on this one!

Smiles and laughter,

  Wow Steve! These words could melt anyone's heart, you do realize that right?! I loved the rhyming scheme, it worked well in this poem and never thought a decent word could rhyme and sound good with debts! lol
This is a deep message about true love and devotion and I applaud you for sharing this sincere and deep emotion in such a beautiful way. Wonderful piece of work Steve!

  This is just beautiful Steve! How lucky this woman is to have you put your heart out on the line for her this way. I know how it feels to be down and want those caring safe and secure shoulders to cry on. And you know from a womans perspective, it is quite effective to win her heart showing all that sweetness and sensitivity...but for some reason I dont think you need me to tell you about sweetness and sensitivityYou are sweet already!Now, as for the poem, it is wonderful. Nicely written and classy. It is written with a lovely heartfelt expression of genuineness which is great friggin great! This is very moving and whoever she is I hope she knows how lucky she is to have someone like you to lean on! You are a sweetie! And a nice poem here! Take care!

  I love the repitition of the line
"My back is broad, my shoulders wide". You may want to formalize the form a bit and use it as the last line of every other stanza.

Graeme's suggestion helps, but
"Like so many outstanding and unpaid debts
So many mistakes and a ton of regrets!"
still seems a "off". I thinks it's the phrase "a ton of" that's throwing me off. It seems too casual somehow.

"Like so many outstanding and unpaid debts
So many mistakes and uncounted regrets!"

Good work!

  A vow of love.. and the strength to see that love through. This is really very good. I think we all, at times, need someone to "be there" with a shoulder big enough to cry on and a heart big enough to "listen". A sturdy, dependable "someone". I think we all need that. Men and women alike.

This line really added to the poem > "My back is broad, my shoulders wide"

Another wonderful write by you.

  at first i didnt like the rhyme or the length of the write.
then i read it again and now i think everything fits perfectly.
the title i think could use some work. but i'm mainly nit-picking.
very poetic. nicely done.

  This is very sweet. For someone who has no one to lean on, this shows me for just a moment what it would be like to have someone else to help ease the burden. Great work, Steve.

  Mate, this is a gem! It's hard to get away with rhyming couplets, but this ain't too shabby at all.

This one:

"You grieve, you mourn, a love that’s Past,
A loss that over your life a pall its’ cast
Like so many outstanding and unpaid debts
So many mistakes and a ton of regrets!"

A bit of a tongue-twister. How about something like

"You grieve, you mourn, a love that’s past,
Over your life its pall has cast,
Life calling in its unpaid debts
So many mistakes and a ton of regrets!"

Just a thought. I really liked this one, mate, right up my alley!


Be Happy

  From a mans point of view, this could really stand a little rehearsing so if it might be used to catch some fish in the sea, our hook will become well set. Most ladies soak this poetry up like a dry sponge in water, then fall head over heels in overly passionate crying and hugging. Then most often the man finds himself having to repeat the pereformance with another wammmy that moves the heart as well as the first one did. Therefore my boy you better get writing, because they will want another just as romanticly enticing as this is.
That just may take some time for most of us, however the old Shrinster Dr. it seems it will be a piece of cake.
Later my boy, well done!

  That is some serious dedication to an extremely fortunate woman (Tina used all my words)

The whole piece was stunning Steve, not one line out of place...I loved every line, but I really felt alot with these:

"I can hold you and shoulder this heavy cross
To me you’d be no Albatross
Always know that I’m at your side
My back is broad, my shoulders wide"

You know me and my visual thing...that just painted a very vivid picture for me...touching and tender.

| Posted on 2005-09-12 00:00:00 | by ravenwolf68 | [ Reply to This ] in the form of poetry...what a lucky lucky woman. I loved the imagery and though you had one line that was repetitive it was one hell of a line and helped to drive home the depth of your devotion for this person...fab-u-los! ;)
