Castello Di Amore

Castello di Amore Parte 1 A million yellow bricks for you, Cut, from the quarry of my soul I work both day and night, A willing lovers toll Over lands, the stones I carry To the place that you have found, Blue skies and rich, loamy soil, Our future promise abounds. The home is built together, Mortar is our Love Furnished with feelings gold, We will, have more than enough Tending the land as one, Ancient and rusty vines Soon, heavy with purple fruit We laugh and make our wine The heady scent of olives, Growing in our grove, We relish the salty taste, A discovery we both know. Years ease past, They're kind to us. We enjoy growing old. Features gently blur, But our yellow bricks still glow You still laugh at me, And I, still smile at you, The later years we hold, Take on a special hue. A longtime ago, I made the yellow bricks for you. Cut, from the quarry of my soul. You laughed and held my hand, My Heart, you made me Whole. Castello di Amore Parte 2 I lie on our bed, You hold my hand. Not long left, in our beautiful land. Darkness quickens around me so, I hear your voice, please don't go. Squeezing your hand, one last time. I am yours and you are mine. Your last kiss. Was my tear. We will smile again My beautiful Fear. A season later, You drink our wine, You taste the love, Both yours and mine. You follow the path Back to our home On this walk, You're never alone You hold me tight, Then close your eyes, And I lift you up, To the burnished skies. Perdonami amore mio Castello di Amore Parte 3 Rising to the heavens, Floating on your smile, We've a long way to go, It will take a while. Your hand in mine I've watched you from above, for some time. You look so happy. You are truly free. Finally. I am you, and you are me. Souls connect, Atoms collide. Our house, the horizon wide. We are the sun, the rain, wind, And the summers tide. Together, amongst the stars, Nothing to fear, Even less to hide. The Universe is ours. Never growing old, Rising with the morning sun, We watch our house of gold.

Thank you - everyone has been so kind! I wrote the poem for the woman who broke my heart and really on a whim posted it here. I thought others may like to read it - that's all. Again thank you.
