A beautiful truth

I listened as you spoke 
a beautiful truth
in my soul I said amen
lovers love, when all seems lost
poets capture it with their pen

When I'm filled with sadness
and my heart feels deaf
words are magic that you bring
these soundless words on a page
are what cause my heart to sing

I breathe your unseen breaths
my lungs filled with air
you cradle me in your dreams
silver filling the night sky
love flowing to me in streams

You think you dance alone
on a pure white stage
until you're offered a hand
then the magic comes alive
the stage is yours to command






6 syllables line one
5 syllables line two
Line 3 to five 7 syllables
Line 3 and 5 are rhyming

    Ah, the "You complete me" line in that Jerry Maguire movie resounds from this. Very, very touching.

    Richard, can I just nickname you Mentor? When I grow out of being a poetry pup I want the skill you so naturally display. I love it and seeing the notes at the bottom raises the score for difficulty :)
