The Quiver Of Fond Lips

I never used to look at people's faces

My body language was out of kilter

Then I met you and saw the world

Through a life-changing filter

 

The thing about you that gets me

Is the quiver of merciful lips

On a mouth adorning the face 

That leaves my heart in bits

 

The quiver of fond lips cant be beaten

It makes my soul leap and rhyme

Should yours ever stop quivering

It would mark the end of time

 

My rugged lips are not on your level

I could not make them quiver if I tried

The only time I saw them do that

Was as a boy when my father died

 

Some mouths are stern, others indifferent

Yours I class as the source of life,

Dont forget to bring those lips to the altar

Next week when I make you my wife

 

The quiver of fond lips cant be beaten

It makes my heart leap and rhyme

Should yours stop quivering

It would mark the end of time

Loved this one! Obviously written with great affection. It's quite true, although I had never thought about it, that people have such very different mouths. Fascinating.

Worth the read.
I get you are a very observative person.
