Lilac Wine

Sweet Love, Love Of My life

Sweet love, love of my life
I have learnt to quench my thirst without water
I have quenched my thirst with the sweet nectar of
Your oceans of kisses
And they have sustained me

Sweet love, love of my life
I have learned to fulfil my hunger without food
I have fulfilled the hunger with the fruits of
Your blossoming love
And it has nourished me

Sweet love, love of my life
I have learnt to achieve my freedom without demand
I have achieved my freedom with the key that
Fits effortlessly into the lock on your heart
And now it beats in time with mine

Sweet love, love of my life
I have learnt to accept each day as it comes without fear
I have accepted life with the guidance of the light of
Understanding which glows in your eyes.
And see how it reflects this true love of mine

    Frickin' A! This was a most moving poem of undrownable love. I just loved that line about quenching your thirst with oceans of kisses. The heart and lock thing i also have done and love. Sweet emotional movement of the love starved heart just wanting more love forever much longer is such a wonderful thought left afloat just off harbor's beached lined shore which docks real squarely with one's acceptable heart. I gotta hand it tu ya, yoov rilly outdun yersalef this tyme!

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
