The Only One

You're the only one. It is true.
I could never love anyone but you.
When in despair I look to you.

Hope eternal springs,
with all the joys you bring.
All this splendour you make me feel.
The fact you're here is so surreal.

There is no other.
You're the only one.
I hope you believe I'm the one.
Playing the field is over and done.
When you know you've found the one.

I never feel the need to frown.
When the one I needs around.
Nothing Else could take the place.
Of this picture perfect face.

Together we'll build a special place.
To spend such endless blissful days.
The only one will do for life.

I take thee now as my wife.
To have and hold. Forever cherish.
Never seeing a single blemish.
I never imagined this day would come.
Eternally now with my only one.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
