Joshua Dinkin (March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)
From The Start
How undeniable your luster,
You are a gemstone, exquisite, rare,
Daring me to come and muster
All the might that one can spare.
It seems by luck or happenstance
I found you in the shifting winds-
How fair your skin, how sweet your glance,
Like morning dew our love begins.
And during night, the fire burning,
Surrounded by a blinking glow,
I pause my thoughts, and slowly turning,
Meet your lips and melt the snow.
How many ways can I express
The happiness that fills my heart-
There's one more thing I must confess,
I've loved you from the very start.
