Hold You In My Smile - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.

    Now that is poetry! !
    I am new to this program. I have not found too many poems that are constructed in their proper form but, this one is beyond what I call beauty. Not only in meter but, in rhyme also.
    Just beautiful! !
