The Joy Of Love

The boundless joy I feel when you are near
   is peerless, much more valuable than gold,                                     
and I can scarce restrain a happy tear
   when your resplendent beauty I behold.
Your tresses, silken and so fair lie soft   
   upon your pillow, vision so divine,    
your slender body mesmerizes, oft                                                             
   I long to hold you close and make you mine.
Your eyes like sparkling stars so deeply rare
   imbue whate'er they see with purity;
no sweeter verdict pass'd could be my share
   than be here bless'd for all eternity,
       safe in your embrace with all the world astray
       I'd lie content, my cares would fade away.

    What a perfect and beautiful sonnet, Keith. So full of love and tender longing. You are a true romantic. This would melt any womans heart. I hope she knows how lucky she is, to have your sweet devotion and your lovely, heatfelt words. Between this and Wistful you have reduced me to a puddle but what a wonderful way to melt! Love Robin
