Together, At Last

Setting: A man and woman are reunited in a garden after an unbearably long separation. From the viewpoint of the man.

Now the sun is slowly rising o'er the mountains
And it lights a sea of diamonds on the flowers kissed with dew
It is shining golden beams into the garden
And they cast a shade of auburn on your hair of golden hue

So here is what I have to say:
The flowers in their beauty have seemed to fade
And here, these diamonds seem to be afraid
At sight of you
The trees, though standing strong and firm
Could not be half as staunchly ever true

While here upon the grass I stand
I'll hold your hand
And then we'll stroll about this garden for a day
I'll hear you say
The things that I have longed to hear
And perhaps we will share joy and tears

Being here by your side
Makes all cares to subside
For I know winds may blow
But the past is washed away
Now I'm here, and I'm here
Foreverlong to stay
Or so I pray

Now the sun is slowly setting in the garden
And the shades of fiery gold and orange have changed to grey and blue
The moon shines in your eyes this starry night
And words can't seem to tell the love I have for you.

    This is very beautiful and it's very interesting how you compared your love to the flowers and trees that fade before her beauty. Like a classic! Congratulations.

    WOW, Isaiah! This poem/song is bursting with feeling. I'm adding this one to my favourites. You make it look so easy. (Also, I am definitely one of your biggest fans, so I can't wait to read your book! There is no doubt in my mind that you will finish writing it!)

    Isaiah---like Randy says on American Idol "Yo Dude, you are in it to win it yo!" Great entry, that is how it's done!! Now you have to wait in the clubhouse and see if any can top it....but you've definitely got a place.
