For Your Patience and Fortitude; For Being My Friend


‘Twas way down the river, that I saw my Sweet One,

Caught a twinkling star; rode the beauty of dawn.

Her cute curls She flaunted, made my heart dry its tears;

My spirit undaunted, abolished all fears.

Her eyes sparkled sweetly, pulled rays from the moon,

Such grandeur and majesty, Heaven’s sweet boon.

She gave me a smile, so charmingly unsullied,

My heart sent Her roses; my longing; my need.

Long eons of darkness; many lonely nights gone,

The shadows decay, now my Light is the Sun.

I do feel in my core, an inebriate high,

My Soul’s in rhapsody; I promise the sky.

The Earth sparkled beneath, the moon’s lustred delight,

As She teased my cute Soul, and offered Her Light.

Love entered sweetly; I felt happily sheltered;

I reached up to Heaven, drunk and bewildered.

The sweet current did whisper, and shimmer with zeal,

My mind was a blur, but the heart could still feel,

A beautiful Spirit, seeking out the unseen –

Splendour that danced in the core of my Being.

      Manatita, I must show this poem to my daughter who is presently visiting and taking all my time (which I give willingly); just wanted to explain why I'm behind on my reading. I am humbled and appreciative of your kind words. As for my daughter, she loves it. Thanks a million!

      I absolutely love this. My most favorite style of poem is the poem that reads rhythmically like lyrics to a song. I guess that is the musician in me. This poem is a true joy to read.
