For Sentimental Reasons

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


For sentimental reasons,

for all, that’s good in this world -

I love only you

and I’ll always remain true.

For sentimental reasons,

for all that’s special,

straight from the bottom of my heart.

Always and always,

I’ll be loving you,

you are my heart and soul -

the other half of me

and I would surely be,

lost if you would leave me.

So for sentimental reasons,

I’ll keep on loving you,

my hand in yours,

always feels so grand.

A feeling that I can hardly stand,

making my heart, beat in rhythm.

Together I go through life with you,

reeling with each smile

and tender touch.

For sentimental reasons,

through all the seasons,

I’ll go on loving you -

always be true.

My love and my life,

I lay at your feet,

I adore you -

miss you when we’re apart.

Love you now,

love you always -

for sentimental reasons.

This one touches the souls who have hope to find a beautiful love such as this one.

Rare to find but worth it if you do.

Great write.
