Words - Poem by Pearline Donalds

Huge waves of joy swept over my soul
As your gentle words encased in tones
Of tenderness reached my waiting ears.
They touched me like the summer's breeze
Caressing my waiting heart.
They settled peacefully in my mind
Quietly saturating it, with their sweet
Aroma, like the fragrance of a thousand
Petals of sweet roses. A delicate picture of perfection

My dancing heart, now beats to the
Rhythm of sheer bliss.
Captured and held a prisoner by your
Words .. so enchanting

I swam around in your sea of love
Totally immersed and captivated,
By those three words... your words...
"I Love You".
