I Love You As I Love The Sun


I love you as I love the sun, 
her blinding rays a blessed truth 
that blaze o'er hill and meadowland 
and sing a song of winsome youth. 

Your warmth puts roaring fires to shame, 
ignites the flame that inward glows, 
it resonates, and sanctifies 
my happy heart, the blushing rose. 

Your tenderness, so blithe and sweet 
entreats, and gently mystifies, 
your countenance personifies 
the glisten in your soft brown eyes. 

May Helios, that wondrous orb, 
forever shine, and play her part, 
and may compassion ever mark 
the fervent beating of your heart.

    Just beautiful Keith. Again it's a reminder of my favorite poems past in the writing and the subject. I've been sick of late and not keeping up with Soup as I'd like to. Can I end a sentence with a preposition? love you, Kathy
