The Beauty Of Your Smile-Sonnet - Poem by Joseph Anderson

Like's springs first breath the beauty in your smile
Stole heart and soul, stole all that I twould be;
Enraptured twas I by your charm and style
E'er knowing that our love was meant to be.

So fair were you in spirit, face and form,
Your golden hair, pure beauty in the sun;
I saw in you a lady sweet and warm
And my heart knew you were the only one.

Fate smiled on us, you were a lovely bride
And I, in turn became a richer man,
Who oft did dwell amidst my joy and pride,
As we moved onward through life's mortal span.

Fate closed life's door, now you are gone from me
Yet, you remain in precious memory.

    A wonderful piece about love in its most sublime form.
    Oh, yes Joseph fate can be cruel to loving hearts.
    But deep in our soul we will find the grace of gratefulness
    the bitterness of loss will make place for sweet memories
    Forgiveness will seem so natural that we lose all guilt
    I wish you lots and of lots of strength, Joseph
    You are a great poet and I know that with that poet soul
    you will find peace after the loss.
    I will pray for your strength and keep writing these wonderful poems

    A very touching and embracing piece of poetry. Love and death both expressed with
    unspeakable joy and sadness. Both are a part of life. I am humble by it. Thanks! I invite
    you to read my poem Salute to Soldiers.

    Going through the first three stanzas I felt so happy about the great romance and suddenly the last two lines snatched my heart away! A wonderful tribute to your loved one who has left this world! (Report) Reply

    The greatest tribute, a loving husband can ever give to his wife! Though snatched off from you by the hands of Fate, her memories are still rejuvenating! That's what ideal companionship is meant to be! 'With her, I became a richer man'... that speaks volumes about your marital bliss! (Report) Reply
