A Shakespearean Sonnet

Before you, beauty couldn’t be defined
Your eyes glisten like the sun on the sea
To say I love you, I’m more than inclined
Yes, I really hope you will stay with me

Your face shines brighter than the mid-day sun
Not even to an angel, you compare
From more than six-billion, you’re the one
The love I have for you, I dare not share

You are my Lanore, with me here and now
You are clumsy, yet graceful, like a dove
Nothing bad to you, I should now allow
You are the one I must say I do love

For you are worth the most beautiful rhyme
When I’m with you, wasted not is my time
