❧❦ giving ❦❧


you gave me your heart

placed it gently next to mine…..

i knew you loved me


i knew you loved me

from the look in your eyes    ….so

i gave you my Love


i gave you my Love…

smiling, you said Love was why

you gave me your heart

  1. A beautiful expression of reciprocal love, Dani!

  2. How complex an interaction love can be…hopefully it is always worth the compromise

  3. I like the ‘”logic” in this, the progression of a giving, reciprocal love. Each haiku can stand alone.

  4. I like the way you switched up the lines in each stanza. What a gorgeous painting of Cupid and Psyche!

  5. Very sweet and romantic Dani ~
