The Spirit Of Love


Alone in the dark, I can feel him,
Soon his essence is filling the air,
One by one, my senses awaken,
This thrill is more than I can bear

To my lips, he delivers a kiss,
Or a gentle touch on my arm,
I'm alone with this haunting spirit....
Yet, I feel no cause for alarm

The spirit of his love encircles me,
Whirling like a hurricane,
My senses are reeling.... how can this be,
Links of rapture are forming a chain

His spirit has overtaken me.....
I succumb to its trampling feet,
No longer does my lonely song echo,
Sad refrains no longer repeat

Like a mantle, he falls upon me,
This spirit of love I adore,
Yet, I tremble to think it's but a dream.....
I'll awaken..... and feel him no more....

Poem of the Day

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.
