Poetry of Life

By: Steve Soskin

There she was
Before my eyes you shimmered in the moonlight
A diaphanous being of beauty and love
Sent to me as a gift to be cherished
For your sweet soul and wondrous spirit
The fire in your eyes igniting my soul
With a yearning desire to be with you
The perfection of your body an ode to your femininity

There you are
Right here before me
Yes, I see you as you unfold before me
Petal by petal
The flower of love, the poetry of life
You came to me
Brought by the soft breeze of a sultry tropical eve
All of your beauty glowing
Lighting the pathway of love
And leading me along it's myriad meanderings
Straight to your heart.

Here we are
yes, you and I
Together as one
Brought together for eternity
Lovers and friends
In the forever universe of love's land of magic
As moonlight shimmers
And you in your glorious beauty
Take my heart to heights
In passion's playground of delight.
