A Love Song To A Beloved

‘‘A friend once in his youthful flight Had found a beauty delight Though distance stretched them in mileage But their love was destined to find a page’’ A lark that sings in the morning bright Ke-ke-li, O Kekeli! My beautiful light The hanging garden upon my sight Hands of fate has woven a happy home A love of current, stronger than the Law of Ohm Invigorating, a love connected at heart Which God designed never to part Where there is love,they say there is a way Our love I believe is here to stay Kekeli, my beloved, sing me a serenade A song of an angel’s grade That in heaven’s clime pervade Sing it across space and time And make it last like a rhyme My beloved Kekeli! You’re my light You’re my Hephzibah, my only delight Thou art fairer than Friedan Betty Thou art matchless in beauty So calm and inviting like the blue sea Beauty not to be told but for eyes to see Behold my mistress of fair skin Eyes of diamonds, pure and pristine O Tell me, you whom I was made to love One, unique in your choicest apparel Lips of zebra stipes set with a berry The hanging petals of a blossom cherry Chief among all my thousands buddies O Kekeli! The only ruby my finger shall find And wouldn’t be ashamed to be called uxorious "For as a young man marries a virgin so shall your sons marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you". Isa 62:5
