My Love for You
My love for you is spelt in stars
Is weaved by threads in tapestries.
On fruits the dimples of their flesh
Show prints upon their dewy skins
To declare in blushing comfort
What my heart so gladly brings.
As clouds know of a deeper blue
Skies cradle birds to swell the view
My love for you burns candle-bright
Is shown by everlasting flowers,
They stretch from field to weathered beach
To sway in never-ending hours.
And milky, silk shells tell the time
Of aging seas; their worldly powers
As oceans call on other shores
My love's perfection strengthens more
Washed by rivers that pass through trees
As pure as each new century.
For you, love lies beyond the pen,
Surpassed by an impassioned verse
Let me pause these fleeting days
To keep our presence undisturbed.
Come life, come love and so be true
Eternal is my love for you.
