Love Was Sent, Treasure That Healed Two Crushed Hearts - A collaboration with Robert Lindley

Life shattered, soul crushed, another one has perished once gone from this world was all she ever cherished No amazing and joyful tales to tell the kids just naked silence, from raging of black rapids From heavens above, truest of gifts handed down romance sent, from He that wears faith's eternal crown. In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn Love, its Lights flamed, happiness needs no explaining summer warmth came from darkness rapidly waning O' what glory, shall your heart forever hold mine our sweet blessing, came from angelic hands divine Within nights, kisses that sated our hot desires came oaths of eternal love that never expires. In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn Our soaring passions’ pure as nightingale’s song enrapturing seduction righted what was wrong upon our heartstrings’ twilight music we did fly as supernova lusts did unfurl ‘cross the sky - scintillating stardust showered us with magic our souls’ kissed in sparkling bliss since events tragic. In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn Dreamy nectar - ripened wine, whetted revival as I sipped upon your essence for survival aroused the wild-honey luscious look in your eyes behind ambrosial mist passionate beauty lies on thirsty tongues of fire we burned ‘till morning’s light melting past the pain in moonflower swirls of night In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn Robert J. Lindley and Susan Ashley (a collaboration) April 24, 2019 ~ Poem Of The Day ~ Friday, April 26, 2019 Special note: It is a tremendous honor for me to share in the wonderful recognition of Poem Of The Day with my gifted and inspiring collaborator, Robert Lindley.
