Excerpt 3 from ‘A Poetic Proposal’

As part of the release of ‘A Poetic Proposal’ I am going to feature a poem from the book, dedicated to Ionia, each day as a taster of the poetry you can experience inside.

This poem works as a companion piece to ‘When I say Your Name’ featured in the first of this series of posts. I hope you enjoy it.

When you say my name

When you say my name,
My heart it skips a beat,
It fills my soul with joy,
It makes me feel complete.

When you say my name,
It takes my breath away,
Makes me believe in god,
And like I ought to pray.

When you say my name,
Whether Julian or Jules,
I know for you I’d break,
All the senseless rules.

When you say my name,
In your special way,
I know I want to be,
Right there, with you to stay.

When you say my name,
And I tell you, ‘I love you’,
I look towards that perfect day,
When we both shall say ‘I do’

The book is available here and comes in both digital and paperback format. Stocking fillers! Don’t forget.
