Gracefully

Of endless love, a beauty of great renown,
          Of treasures richer than a regal crown

Fragrance spray of sweet nectar's love
          You’re God’s gift from heaven above

In silence embraced by a spirit kindred to my own,
          Henceforth no longer to walk alone

For 'tis thy love that defines my worth
          ‘Twill not vanish like time on earth

Though my youthful years now dwindle down
          ‘Tis an everlasting love I truly found

O’ most radiant essence from heaven above
          Descended like a priceless dove

To obtain a great and gracious noble life
          Hence to endure this mortal strife

Now we meekly search for your lovely face
          In memory of your sweet and tender grace

A virtuous offer of mercy to extend
          Where light and knowledge will attend

O’ of slumbers gentle peaceful rest
          Unquestioned welcome and truly blessed

‘Tis from God’s kind and gentle grace
          We hope to once again behold your face

This is a very pretty poem, if you know what I mean. I like your turn of phrase. I also like how you presented it visually.
