Only I Can Tell

The road to my journey only I can tell

Dear Heart, listen to me, yes, do hear me well

I count gleaming pebbles like marbles along a path

Your love had conquered my past and painful rumbling wrath.

I breathe the spells of Earth’s humble dust

I laugh out madness from blazing rust

I embrace fervent blessings of warm monsoon rain

I bleed weeping in my past, but you helped refrain.

Bathe in joy with you under the gracious sun

Time will take me there; from you I do not run

When strong guided winds carry me through and through

Your love is my shelter, my only rescue.

The road to my journey only I can tell

You adorn my life with your sweet-scented smell

Mold by your love, I walk miles in foolish smiles

You touch my heart in a hundred splendored styles.

I leave behind childish cares gone the wrong way

Age growing like fresh grass of the meadows, we play

Your every heartbeat dances around like jeweled flies

Each season crowns your pretty head, all in happy cries.

My Love, you put down your feet in rhythmic with mine

I share your weight on my shoulders; love is like wine

Back to my rest, shadows caped by the moon

Upon your words, into your loving arms I swoon.

You are in my breath, every breath you stay

Oh, my night dreams you chase and steal away

My journey calm as a whisper, restless tomorrow

No one can tell the road I am, only I will know.

      Hi Tess!

      Boy, I sure have missed you precious heart. This poem is superb, profound, enchanting and passionate and beyond . . . just like you.

      Always love your photos, and this one is no exception . . . perfect with this amazing poem.
