Adorable, descriptive of a love divine,
Beguiling smile the emblem of a hallowed shrine,
Communication symbolised a sacred sign,
Diamond eyes, the stars above forever shine.
Entrancing, sweetest perfume on the warmest night,
Foretelling greater futures with a second sight,
Gorgeous in the breaking of the dawning light,
Honesty igniting, true and burning bright..
Incomparable to any other living thing,
Justified by gifts to either take or bring,
Key to every secret wish or wondering,
Lovely as the fertile days of virgin spring.
Mellow as the midnight jazz or bourbon blues,
Never to be cast away as dead man's shoes,
Only choice conferred without a will to choose,
Perfect spark to conflagrate the latent fuse.
Qualitative beauty formed demure and fair,
Ravishing crusader crushing bleak despair,
Satisfying every dream beyond compare,
Tenacity and tender ever-loving care.
Unity with all there is to see and show,
Vivacity of life bequeathed to breathe and grow,
Wondrous as each complicated flake of snow,
Xanadu would never stand or stoop to know
Yearning such as this emotion crystallise,
Zenith of the urge to touch the very skies...
