If Only You Knew - Poem by John Knight

Love is the master key that opens the Gate of Happiness
If only tou knew how my heart overflows with love for you.
If only you knew how you fill my hopes and dreams.
You - and you alone are the owner of my heart - the Ruler Supreme.
We have never met - but I will be faithful to you forever.
In the darkness of the night - when I am all alone..........
I thnk abou you always and feel your loving presence.
I drift from this world - feeling I will never ever
Touch ground again - If only you knew - If only you could guess.
I hear your gentle voice - when others speak
I seek your soul in every single face I see
If only you could feel - how your image has the power to heal.
I am willing to give you my all - and expect nothing in return
But Oh how I yearn fo ryou - If only you knew - If only you knew.

    ‘…You - and you alone are the owner of my heart - the Ruler Supreme….’

    I think it is aimed at God as ‘Ruler and Supreme’ are used in upper case…
    This is 'Love' not 'love'…

    Excellent write. Thanks for sharing

    a romantic masterpiece! I hear the sound of LOST LOVE WAVES/
    LOVE begins with a SMILE but ends with TEARS
    I liked it so much

    Wow the longing in here is so potent; you know some unexpected miracle of an alchemical transformation is bound to occur someday (though it's true; these things can sometimes take years) and all your yearning will re repaid and then some! It's the law, that's all..(smile) (Report)Reply
