Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Song Of My Love*

As the rains come and the winds blow
so the days go and the years flow.
The crash of waves the thundering skies
so my love goes on that never dies.
Before the Alfa and Omega
the beginning or the end.
Our love, was written in the stars
beyond time - transcending life and death.
Brighter than the shapes of night
supernovae pale beside that light
It was written in the stars.

I should write you love letters
to stir the heart of a woman
to make the fair maiden weep.
To be sung from the highest citadel
as I prey there beneath your feet.
A quest through time for your soul did I seek.
Life before you seeped with countless agonies
when I walked in the fires of hell,
a salve was your love it was ecstasy
left me breathless, cradled in love now I swell.

My heart so full so heavy it pains
defined in expressing this love that it claims.
Sharpest pain and sweetest pleasure
I shall love you my darling forever
through countless ages together.
Beyond time beyond life beyond death.
It was written in the stars.

    Well-explained love with its eternal flame which never extinguishes. You have ties three spaces with a single thread that is love. Plain, air and sky. Woman, wind and star.
    Anyway, your saying is absolutely pronounced. And yet in the last line you finish with 'It was written in the stars'. Yes, it was, it is and it will be if human race still exist on the earth.
    Thank You. Write more......

    Before the Alfa and Omega
    the beginning or the end.
    Our love, was written in the stars
    beyond time - transcending life and death.
    Brighter than the shapes of night
    supernovae pale beside that light
    It was written in the stars.

    very nice poem indeed! ! !
    i do not believe in predestination. but i do really believe our love experiences is guided by God. all the joys and sufferings of love makes u so mature and help us relate to God more and more. thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    A very sweet song, indeed! Though the theme is run-off-the-mill in poetry, you have presented it very well. The imagery is fabulous, words are passionate, mood is positive,
    flow of the stanzas is smooth, literary quality has not been sacrificed for the sake of rhyme,
    theme, of course, is good. Overall, a very good write. A 10+++++....... for sure here. (Report) Reply
