Ardor


Could this be Karma or some sort of sign?
For this love must be fated by a Higher design

For when I close my eyes, my every thought is of you
When I open my heart, dark thoughts cry adieu

I have waited forever for this one simple sign
As this must be Kismet or the fates grand design

I am lost in a rapture where I finally belong
Waiting forever for my heart's truest song

As I throw off these self-binding and tethering ties
A streaking red comet crosses the darkening skies

A soul once cold, now warm as a flickering flame
This true heart will not break in love's inertial frame

Drunk with your love as it floods through my mind
Tracing the water's path where true love does wind

A one tearful heart is now vibrant and prime
For a beauty like ours is ever impervious to time.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
