I Sense Your Essence In The Breeze

Black ravens plague this existence,
yet you stay with me, longing for my hopelessness to cease,
For I am but a man craving to be near you for all of eternity.
I embrace you…you hold me tight
Sweetheart, you are my perpetual connection.


I knew the pain of loss and despair you carried with ease;
saturated in loneliness were you
your genuine adoration still sustains
as the tempest rages in warm rains,
descending onto my grateful knees.

A million fairytales tremble at us,
My alleviation found in perfection;
I sense your essence in the breeze.
bound by love and affection
they know how our love does outshine with flickering light!

The wind blows, and gusts prevail.
Sounds of swift ivory doves cry out,
fleeting into the ebon night; 
for our love loses not insight,
never cursed or full of deep blight.

Weeping in the forsaken land of my desolated heart’s remains;
intense obscurity of the calamity I faced before you attains;
emerging from the dust I was found
and I shall feel this pure affection for you, 
my beloved…eternally.
