Your penned words do inspire me


Your words are like thousands of butterflies
landing on the flowers of my heart.
and I have learned to blossom
when I hear them.

Your wisdom has astonished me
and I have experienced life through your eyes
when your words dance
like thousands of rays on the surface of a dam.

Your hands running of the keyboard of the computer
is music to my ears
and I do intimately know
every gesture that you make

and your words fall like rain
that I can smell as they do nourish my soul.

How well do I know your silhouette
and at times I do forget
all of the things that you have said
but the things that you do write
are written on my heart

and your words are like
glorious bush-veldt sunrises
and forever you will be
the angel of my heart.

If today is the first day of forever,
I do want to spent the rest of eternity with you
and if words on paper acknowledge the feelings in your heart
then I want you to read your poetry to me
to be able to comprehend
each little syllable of love

and I want to love you
while days fly by with each colouring horizon
and today does disappear into each tomorrow.

    That commitment and desire took my breath away!
    An amazing write that could only come from an amazing heart
    Is the music a symphonic orchestra now? (Report) Reply
