A Summer Of Lastingness

In a summer of lastingness, long ago,
what you had in store for me my love,
I could've never known.

Through the depth and channels
of the heart, you have shown me
life begins, where the loving starts.

Like an unfolded rose growing in the
morning's misty dew, you feed me
and then sheltered me as I grew.

If I stood before you today my love
you would see a full rose in bloom,
not at all hindered by gloom. 

A strong stem, no regrets, no sorrow.
Only togetherness with you, full of
brighter tomorrows.

Thank you for all you planted in the 
garden of my hardened soil.
A summer of lastingness has forever
brought tenderness instead of toil.

Heartfelt thanks come full circle. The ending meets the beginning. I think this expression is how I, myself, would offer gratitude sometimes, and whether the intended ever received it may regret never join that circle.

A great piece from the very Queen of superior verse. I would be very happy if I had a half of your colossal gift. I'm an editor here in Kenya and I always overstep the bounds of my mandate, Lol! - check the "it's" (short for "it is") and the possessive "its" in the two of the three poems I have read. Otherwise, you are in a cadre of your own...7+++ as usual.
