Sleep - Poem by S.C. Setai

As I stand by the unnamed love,
and see her joke, smile laugh and jeast,
her face is like the heavenly dove,
may I lie with you and sleep for time the reast.
Your eyes shine like the brightest star,
lost in a sea of endless space,
I would go for you anywhere, no matter how far,
I would die a thousand deaths to see your wondrous face.
I love you always when you are happy and sad,
my thoughts are of you forever, in life and death,
I once hated life but you made me glad,
now so precious is my every breath.
O angel of endless beauty, I love you with all my heart so deep,
and may I follow you throughout our lives,
and with you lie in everlasting sleep.

    I really liked the rhyme scheme within this poem. I see that you speak of love, as if you have experienced it in such a way that you know what it is to be loyal and want to show this appreciation forever, with an everlasting touch. Very well written.

    I am going to point out some spelling mistakes: brightest**, always**, Thoughts** and Beauty**. I am not sure about the grammar. but it seems fine.

    Well done.
