Love's Gratitude


If words can speak to the human heart
then these
are aimed at yours.

If time can convey
soul stirrings profound
then these are its rustlings.

If you can kiss my soul
then please commence
and I will wander through
life's playing cards
and die knowing happiness.
 

I"ll take these offierings
of yours
as life's true sacraments
and drape them across this
quivering heart
bathed in gratefulness.

Such gifts are diamond faceted
because you have given them
almost invisibily
rising as they do
from that deep well
of a heart spent
giving
rather than receving.

Lay me down at Love's Feet
gentle me
with sentiments;
pair me
with just one kiss
from that sweet mouth of yours
and I'll bequeth you with
sugar promises
to keep
now and forever more.

Take my opened hand;
clutch it tight
as we spread our wings
across the arching sky
creating a new constellation;
New Love soaring,
getting born,
coming into Being.
