My Love For You

Written by: kathleen stevens

Did the world truly exist-
 
Before we loved?
 
With Mutual delights,
 
Shining splendor,
 
And dreams select;
 
An autumn day you appeared
 
 As my falling star searing brightly
 
 Across the black midnight sky,
 
Where all my wishes were;
 
Say you love me,
 
 If only for this day,
 
And if I whisper back, “I love you”,
 
Will you consider to forever stay?
 
Your loveliness a stronghold,
 
While I trace your loving warmth -
 
 My arms gather your body’s form,
 
My heart knows no other yesterday,
 
While in our tenderness we lay.
 
No masks to wear,
 
 No games to play,
 
I vow my love for you
 
 Never to betray,
 
The fruit of my honor
 
 I give to thee, and only thee.
 
I’ll long for you forever,
 
 I pray your love grows
 
Designed merely for me,
 
And every day I await your love-
 
 This you will eternally see.
