Your Flower - Poem by Ashley Goncalves

Silent flashes of golden white scattered across my hidden canvas of you
The silence it brings in my mind conquers sadness of dark shades and hues
Although time and space mustn't justify the senses enveloping me in this place and time
To adore you in this way with this devotion and love was never in history a crime

Unspoken is what I am as I am named nothing more than a flower who dreams
But as I bloom and bring forth the color on this canvas, I am achieving more than it seems
This painting of mine isn't spoken through sight but through the art of sound
And as one reads it the power of the words will leap and with meaning resound

I pour with great care these words onto this sheet of paper and sing
I sing for all that was lost and all that our beloved God will bring
I pray for love to find its way amongst the branches of loss and pain
I pour these words into something of meaning as water does into rain

Poetry isn't taught to those who merely wish for it in desire
But God places it deep within the chambers of their hearts as a raging powerful fire
It is a gift from the angels above to reach out via music lacking a tune
But most of all the angels have provided me with poetry to show my love to you

I pour these words with care so that you may feel my smoldering love
And for the touch in poetry I deeply thank the Lord and his angels above
Through my pain and trials I must thank them through as well
Because the only way to find soulful words is to go through raging hell

Thank you to those who were kind to me through the enveloping darkness of night
And thank you Lord and God for protecting me with your power and might
I deeply love with this light of day those who remained close and kindly
But this poem was written for one special person, and that person is my Vinnie.
