One Fine Gentleman

A Poem from the novel
"The Essence of Poetry II: Gerald's Sophomore Yet Grown Poetrybook"
Written by: Gerald L. Ingraham


Allow yourself to stop, think, pause and reflect
While you may as well close your eyes
To picture a night that you would never neglect.
The very night that made you realize
Many things you do I've learned to appreciate
And without any questions asked or inquired
To contradict the essence of fate,
I must tell you, my sweetheart, I'm still inspired.
Let alone, I remain to be very intrigued
By your various manners of making sweet love
Something provided when I was really in need.
Til this day, you're the first and last thing I think of.

A gentleman is whom I have come to be,
And a lady is whom I have come to know.
So make this moment, the turning point to see
Where is the next place we shall need to go.
I usually take little chances or no chance
To make love one of the first things assured
Unless there is really more romance
Of which I could be or feel secure.
Sweetie, I need you to just envision
This rare night as our very own special night.
A grand night of spectacular incision
Of a passionate love one cannot try to fight.

As you look around the home
After you have taken a step from naked air,
You see nothing but candles wherever you roam
And petals of red roses on the side everywhere.
You walk, then stop for moment to smell
The lovely candles and fragrant flowers
Now, image speaks words a mouth cannot tell
As you see me again from a lifetime of long hours,
But the kitchen is not a place to wait
When I have set up a nice table for two.
So I rush you to that table without a plate,
Yet with wine glasses; one for me and one for you.

I light that candle on the table
And bring you the red wine.
I want to prove myself as the only one able
To make you feel that we shall fare just fine.
Preparing the table with simple dishes
Of my day's labor from slaving over a stove so hot,
I would be delighted to command your wishes
Starting with tonight after I reach the right spot.
Let us do wine and dine like those of wealth,
Because everything I do is for you
And this is the night you need no frets of health.
You deserve the best offer of what I could do.

Allow me to play a tad of music so soft
To relax your mind from all the tension.
You are a certified angel who was once aloft
and you also have all my attention.
I need to learn to love a unique someone
So why should I not start with you?
You are the one to whom I belong
And I would like to make dreams come true.
Please take my hand and let me lead.
I shall love you with the utmost romance.
I have come this far and I'll get on my knee to plead
Just for this opportunity to start to slow dance.

Imagine a night like this.
If you claim a gentleman like me,
Then there shall not be a thing to miss
And this, you shall see.
