A Letter Under My Door - Poem by Rik Bertrand

One word, I only need one word for my faith in love to be renewed,
I have had trials and tribulations in the art of caring, I want to be daring.
I want to hear that one word that will melt my heart, and warm my soul
Life is too short to hold off on love that is true, and waiting is taking its toll.

And then a letter arrived under my door,

Such beauty I have never seen, like an angel in a heavenly dream,
At first glance my eyes caught yours; your green eyes did gleam.
I was mesmerized by the warmth I felt, as you slowly passed me by,
Our hands brushed ever so gently, and a passionate tear came to my eye.

I looked back at you as walked on by; you were dressed in seductive red,
I was hoping you understood my thoughts, with nothing being said.
For I was wishing you to turn around so that I could see your beautiful face,
And by a miracle you turned and smiled and my heart beat picked up pace.

I know that you don't know me, but I am wishing that you did
Because what we could have together, could slide right off the grid.
When I think of your raw beauty, my body tingles with delight,
I know that if you gave me a chance, you would know that I was right.

DEVOTION to loving you is the word that comes to mind
DEVOTION of my heart to you is what I will do in kind.
All I ask is for one small chance to show you how we can love,
And you will see the DEVOTION that I have, for you and God above.

Thank you for reading my letter, I hope you will understand
I am not some crazy stalker; I am just a simple loving man.
If you decide not to meet with me I will take it all to heart,
All though I must tell you truthfully, I will completely fall apart.
\\\Always an Admirer

Now the letter was not signed, but I do remember passing a very handsome man
I remember feeling a passionate chill, and the touching of his hand
I remember looking back and smiling at him, and my heart began to flutter,
I remember that so Cleary, thinking that this man could me know other.

So now how do go about finding him, will he send me another letter,
The answer came almost immediately and it was way so much better,
Two doves flew in through an open window, carrying a small square box,
And as they dropped it the floor out came a silver fox.

What had fallen to the floor was a charm, attached to a silver necklace
And also there was a tiny note that said meet me in my palace.
The letter, that I had just read, was from the prince of the Castle
And now my world was all mixed up and my heart was beginning to unravel

A Beautiful Prince in the castle above, had sent me a loving letter,
A letter that turned my soul and my passion to red hot chilli pepper.
DEVOTION was the key, that was the one word I was looking for,
And this young prince came knocking and placed it at my door.

I will not tell you the rest, for the future can always bend
But I will tell you it was just the beginning and love stories never end
I am happy with my loving Prince; I think that I will always be
For he has set my love afire and DEVOTION is his decree.
