Bridge of our love

Within her heart and mine, we built a bridge of our love
to cross the river of obstacles flowing beneath.
It was utterly constructed with our bonding heartbeat.
Our souls meet there in merriment to entwine in love.
We greet each other with big bouquets of blossoming love
and tie ribbons of our love prayers on its rails with wreath.
Within her heart and mine...

The pleasure of briefest moments that we shared in love
are now the sweetest memories, exquisite love treat.
Secured in cute love locks; affixed on rails in love's sheath.
It's the bridge that has countless souvenirs of our love.
Within her heart and mine...

It is great to stay on the bridge, to make a house there, in the light above the river of words flowing

This is very romantic. It is a good one for me to see that I have not seen before. You have a flair with words, Afzal. I take it you are not native English speaker? If so, I think you are writing remarkably well in English.
