Poem: Treating Her Like a Queen

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Treating Her Like a Queen "

He treats her like she is worthy
of a queen's status,
giving up his giant bed
slumbering on the couch
a few feet away.

Cherishing each precious moment
he shares with her,
not jumping ahead
selling himself as the perfect mate.

Acting like a perfect gentleman,
not rushing her feelings,
displaying genuine love
hoping she understands,
he will always treat her
like a lady.

"Pretty Woman" (lyrics) by Roy Orbison

Lorna,

Thank you so much for your heartfelt compliment.

I personally believe I have a ways to go with my writing but I am delighted with your confidence in me.

I hope your daughter doesn't rush and waits on the right man.

Goodluck in these trying times if dating.

Ruby,

Thank you so much!

Yes, it is nice to come across a gentleman once in awhile.

I think it's a dying breed though.

Have a lovely evening.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on February 28, 2020:

I think every woman wants to be treated like a queen. Your poem reflects that perfectly.

Lorna from USA on February 28, 2020:

This poem describes my desire for my daughter that she will be treated like a queen by a real gentleman. She's on her dating stage. "Acting like a perfect gentleman, not rushing her feelings," You nailed it Brenda! Thank you!

I wish I can write poems like you and Lorna...

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 28, 2020:

Thank you Lorna.

So delighted to know this is one of your favorites.

Awe...hopeless romantic...me too.

I sometimes think we are a dying breed though.

Enjoy your day.

This is definitely a favourite of mine Brenda and your poem is exactly what I expect a partner to be. Of course I am a hopeless romantic. Beautifully written with a tender feel. Loved it.
