My Fairest Maiden

Gazing toward the horizon, embracing this now setting sun

While as stepping through this threshold, to find myself

Once more mesmerized by these thoughts of her portrait

Born, inside such cupids eyes of love

A feeling somewhat familiar begins to arise, deep inside, this soul of my very soul

Something that for many years now it seems, has lay hidden 

From within this beating heart of mine....

Reflectng on the first time I had ever beheld her fragrance

As a crimsons rose, gently blossoming before my sight

Amid these gloriously vivid colors, that had marked her radiance 

As I watched within astonishing amazement

Unknowing along the paths of time, that her beauty, would then steal my thoughts....

Within the nighttime stillness I have journied and crossed

These vast oceans to be near her side; to breathe in her glowing light

Which fills her perfect soulful eyes, beneath, her soft and lovely lashes

This precious white dove; with her flowing, and silkened brown hair

Tenderly smiling, with her glistening strawberry lips, whispering, such words of life   

Upon the shores of her whitened sands, afore this glittering, starlit night

Dare I dream of Cinderella once more I pondered ?

While holding these diamond slippers of silver, within my dreaming, wanting hands....

As I then blinked my eyes not once but twice, and stared back, upon the open waters

Of the Pacific; from atop this balcony whereon I do now stand

Peering beyond the breaks of these enchanting mooncrested currents 

And looking towards the heavens within their soothing solace

While wishing, if only she were here; her beauty, by my side

Taking another sip of red Chateau wine, and, then closing my eyes

That I may listen to the waves amid their serenty calling her name

Spellbinding, time after time, after time, again; as once more, I breathe her in

Into this princess of all that truly matters, that truly matters, inside of me....

Smiling as I glimpse the shoreline; and then, this ever rolling tide

Where into I cast another kiss; in hopes that it shall find her treasures front door

Her majesty ~ Who became all that she is, all, within the blink of an eye

A crimsons rose, held by my dreaming heart; as I wonder, will she ever be mine....

She, 'My Fairest Maiden' ~

    It feels like looking into a lovely painting.....in colors of crimson, such beauty and love portrayed, with gentle strokes from the artist who loved her. Wonderful, gently crafted, and softly laid on canvas! :) ~ Carrie
