Moonbeams And Love

With a glistening sparkle through shadows you beamed
And never again would life be as it seemed
Touching my skin with your softening light
You midwifed new day from the depths of my night

With the grace of love's light I could look deep inside
Seeing feelings as textures not something to hide
With truth clearly mirrored in naked delight
I now can embrace both the day and the night

From the seeds that you nurtured my love it has grown
Now it's richer and wider than I've ever known
It begins with a love for my self deep inside
And it spreads out to others I meet far and wide

For it's love that we yearn for and love that we need
It makes us far richer than money or greed
With eyes in clear focus the truth we can see
That moonbeams and love are eternally free

    Truly a delight to read! I especially liked the last verse of the first stanza - what a creative way to express this moment and lead into something magical.
