~ Destiny ~

Remembering, when I first beheld her fragrant essence

This pleasantly perfect image, which tied me to entranced

A picture and a vision, that filled my wanting thoughts

With this mesmerizing lady, whoms aura thus emitted, radiances of such splendor

Those, which enthralled my beating heart, with desires of endless wonders

As I gazed upon enchanted, within her golden laced portrait

This soul that seemed to transcend, but all of space and time 

Encasing these depths of love, held spellbound upon her petals

A flower that I had known, long, before even life

Traveling through this vortex, toward the pinnacles, of the now sublime

To touch her once again, as the pages they unfolded, and the days, passed by

Within her words, that began to capture, her verses, my soul 

More and more, with every gentle one, she spoke

From lips that were soft, and eyes, that were pure

As innocent as a child, this princess, as I watched her glide

Atop the glistening waters, imagining, that it was all, just for me

Shining as I stood enthroned, enraptured, within these dream filled hopes

That maybe, just maybe, one day, she would be my very own

While I watched her grow, from shimmering, unto magnificent

Manifesting, as she pirouetted, about the brightened stage

With I, the only spectator, alone, as she danced with glee

The most beautiful of beauties, that these eyes, they had ever seen

    Hi My friend. I just wanted to stop by and say that I hope you don't misinterpet my post today. I was trying to convey the lost souls content to drift along in darkness, and how God weeps for them. Like endless sand, they just keep falling. perhaps i didn't express myself to well. Anyway, that it what i meant. Hope you have a happy new year. Love Christie and Brianna
