Gift

Gift

They vowed to be together till death,
Oh, that day was such a holy gift!

Both freely gave their selves to each other;
And received the gift of one another,

Hearts full of dreams they sailed the rough seas;
Their love they knew would bring them still peace;

Strong winds blew, rains fell, and thunders struck
With their pure love they never got stuck;

The changing weather continued to unfold;
A western wind zephyr blew the couples cold;

They found themselves no longer intertwined;
And sprung from each, passions of their own mind;

They danced to different tunes and speckled inspiration;
It seemed to be a dance of good synchronization;

And when they danced to the same melody;
They found themselves not in good harmony;

For they have valued their song of individuality;
Much that they can no longer delight in their affinity;

Their passion for each other quietly waned;
Like a dead leaf silently blown by the wind;

They sat together in utter sadness;
And asked why and where they have gone amiss;

They looked into each other’s sad eyes -
Is it an ember emitting lights?

They whispered sincerely to the flickering glow;
Bright it became; and slowly it burned their deep woe,

They found their true gifts and gifted each other;
A warm encounter they thought was a bother;

The music of their bodies sang melodiously;
Without any word they expressed so delightfully;

“Forgive me”, as they exchanged glances
“Forgive me, too”, as they held their hands 

Grateful lyrics of “thank you” echoes;
As they exchanged an impassioned kiss;

“Let us stay together and grow in love”
Reverberated as their hands tight-clasped;

This holy gift worth more than earth's gold -
God, they will never again withhold.

Loved your couplet, O Daughter of the Moon. Had to come back for more. How did I ever miss this one? Did you, by any chance, post this by your mother's light on one such lovely night? Enjoyed it immensely, my dear. Couples dance sometimes apart, but not for long upon cupid's dart, they come together, to dance the sensual art...Now you've got me waxin' poetic quite literally...lol! Awesome 7! Wishin' you more crazy lovely day, my friend...:D

This was impressive conjugal highs and lows poetry! So charmingly written! Marriages with premarital love affairs are very hard to last long. Kudos. So nice to read u again.
