Eternally Yours - Poem by Bernard Franklin

You took away my loneliness,
you dried my eyes of tears,
you healed my heart with just a kiss,
and erased my deepest fears.

You gave your love, and cradled me,
you made me feel secure,
your passion for the life you have,
is strong and safe and sure.

Your beauty put a spell on me,
And laid siege my inner thought,
for I’ve been sailing on a sea of fire,
like a ship without a port.

Your spirit like a beacon burns,
wherever you may be.
your joy so bright, a lighthouse beam
does guide my ship at sea.

Your eyes are pools of love and hope,
your smile my rod and staff,
the power you have at your fingertips,
can make me cry or laugh.

I cannot give as much as you,
all I give, is all I’ve got,
but I love you more than life itself,
and that my love’s, a lot.

My heart is caught, and yours to keep,
so guard it safe and sound,
it’s naked, stitched upon my sleeve,
for my soulmate I have found.

Your life force like a lightning bolt,
recharged my thirst for life,
so I ask you to consider me,
one day darling…….be my wife.
