I Wanted To Tell You How Much I Love You. To Rochelle or RDSparrowriter, With Love
Beauty and symmetry
I wanted to tell You, how much I Love You;
How much You mean to me.
But You have placed a veil,
On the pathways of my longing, and the Heart grieves.
One day You came – like a spouting fountain -,
Cascaded a vibrant flow, into the meadow of my Soul.
But I got only a glimpse, as – like a lark -,
You soared away, into the distant sky.
I wanted to tell You how I feel …
To reach for the grandeur of Your silhouette;
Touch Your golden tresses as my tears fell,
Like precious rain-drops from Heaven.
But, like a butterfly leaving its cocoon for freedom,
You flew away into the moonlit night.
O Bird of Light! Sweet Goddess of charisma!
Stay! Tarry a little longer!
I pine in my aloneness, and
Need the fire of Your embrace.
Come! O Paragon of Beauty…let us ascend,
Like winged Pegasus, to the constellation of yon welkin stars.
