You Are

You are to me the essence of a dream
The very piece which makes my life complete
The clearest drink you give me from love’s stream
Your touch brings out in me a nectar sweet

You are to me the warmth of sun by day
The dance of the Aurora in the night
You are the voice that calls my heart to play
The wick that burns my love transferred to light

You are the waves of passion surging strong
You sweep across my form in full command
The sea of fantasy to you belongs
I bathe myself in you by heart’s demand

Yet for all things you do and are to me
I know I am the truth that sets you free

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Thank you all for your lovely comments...I'm so sorry that I haven't answered you individually. I'm not in a very good place lately so...I find it hard to find the words to say....Having said that, I do want you to know that I appreciate your sincere and heart felt posts on this poem. Know that I do read and appreciate them all!

    Stunning work, the last two lines wrap the mystery around and seals it tight between you two and leaves us readers right out of your magical space:)

    Wow, what an incredible write Eileen. A truly inspired piece of poetry here. Each line is a gem. The way you have weaved this poem together is genius. The metaphoric symbolism is absolutely magical. The love of your life described as "The dance of the Aurora in the night" What a beautifully visual poem. Of all your poems this is now my favorite.

    GENIUS??? OH WOW! Flying high, Jon...Thanks every so much...Yes....I'm a star gazer...When I look up at the sky....I reach deep within me...to all the places I've been...all the places I'm going....It's fabulous. The Northern Lights would be a dream to see one day...Can you even imagine dancing lights in the sky? I'm glad you have made this a favorite. :)

    Fantastic wrap up in last 2 lines gal! You should try all the sonnet forms you are great at them. [Eileen I am a novice at Ghazal & what I did would be considered a MODERN ghazal, classical Ghazal requires meter verse, and a pen name in the last line & was traditionally done as a love poem.] Light & Love

    Nothing ho hum about your poetry, Debbie. You are very proficient in all you do. Your poetry challenges me to higher levels. Your Ghazal was AMAZING. Yes...I'm thankful for the explanation. Perhaps I will try my hand at it sometime! :)

    And through the rain, one only has to look within their heart to be reminded of what makes it shine each day. Nothing else matters. A very graceful writing.

    Thanks ever so much, Drake.....Sonnets do lend themselves to graceful expression, don't you think? I'm excited about calling in this Sunday....So hard to decide what to read. I will be prepared! Thanks for the visit.

    Young lady! You are having so much fun with this and I love it. You own free verse already, now you can truly fly into blank verse which is what Robert Frost wrote in predominantly or whatever you want to do. You are amazing because you are one that truly sees that the more you learn about something, the more you realize you don't know and that is why the sky is the limit for you. Like the chaos theory--live too far from the edge you won't grow, too close you'll fall--near you'll learn-great job

    Craig....I can't thank you enough for your help! The sonnet was just eluding me....I think, I think I've got it now.....I want to explore other types. You have helped me with forms I have never tried before. I do want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I want to learn. I've always loved learning....I just drink it all in....
