Flames of love

Written by: Joseph May

Your  lips  by love's own hand were made
 Thy melody like a symphony of Mozart 
Thine  eyes like gems, exquisite jade
The tears that flow when we are apart

Of your beauty many can recite
But only one draws to thy bosom near
Your essence glows, a guiding light
To lead me through the gloom  and fear

That light has dimmed to just a flicker
Though my flaming love burns like wildfire
As my aching heart pounds much quicker
Will love now burn on heartaches pyre
Your beauty still haunts me day and night
And makes my soul take wings in flight
