That One, and Only You

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


You are the sweetest bloom

in a field of wild flowers,

kissed by the sun,

touched only by the caress of a lilting breeze,

like a shimmering reflection of the pinnacle of life,

you stir my heart

and the depths of my soul,

to embrace all that you are.


On first sight you enlivened within me,

my solemn quest,

to know and adore you,

surrender to your beauty, your heart,

and since that moment I am yours alone,

dedicated to share your life and care for you,

and within your arms I shall remain.


With you by my side,

I am fearless, more connected,

to life and all its treasures,

and together we seek all that is pure,

all that has meaning,

within the confusion and challenges of life's path,

and together there are no lies,

no betrayal, no longing unfulfilled,

just the serenity of understanding.


Blessed by a sacred vow,

our union restores me,

brings a wanting universe

into perfect balance,

while angels praise on lofty heights,

and sirens sing in blessed songs,

all for the finding of you,

my love, my soul, my purpose,

that one, and only you.


There is an eternal truth in love and our experience of it.
