As I Do

Cradle gently,
as I cradled you.

Speak softly,
as I spoke to you.

Love deeply,
as I loved you.

Learn from me,
as I learned from you.

Tender. Very nice and endearing write. It's nice to read poetry like this, as it seems like most have gotten away from this style- Great job here, thanks
