A Sonnet For Cliched Lovers - Poem by Michael Ardizzone
The strength I draw from you I make my own
to fight for you so happy you can be
and of this strength I hope it's eas'ly shown
through strength for you my love enhanced be.
Though taken from, this well will not run dry
as strangers meet when meetings seem most rare-
as lovers part when lovers want to cry,
my heart with you I would forever share.
A fool may hold you hard within his grasp,
his heart so tightly clutched in your sweet hands,
but he cannot, in silence, seek repast
in seeking water, reacheth he for sand.
Climb with me, forever through the stars
for you, I'd steal from God his every scar.
