Poetry : My Vow

Updated on March 21, 2011

So far gone yet so close to home,
I find a void essence in my heart.
It keeps me at peace when I am weak...
 and always calms my soul.
I give it recognition when valid lies are up risen,
 because sane is insanity.
Perfection may never rest on a humble bed as mine,
 yet to me you are perfectly so.
Like the ever changing tides of the ocean,
 my love, it grows, even in the vanquished ruin.
Through every waged war in my beating heart,
 still I resonate with yours.
Though it may not always show, my heart is eternity grateful,
and my love... I am yours.
Keep peace in knowing, I am no where in going,
with out you by my side.

      Lovely poem, Brittles. As the Bible says - from the abundance of the heart flows words over the lips.
