Sonnet V: Love Through A Distance
I gaze at your lovely face day by day.
When in disgrace, you are my salvation.
The love my soul has will not fade away,
And for you, I'd conquer all creation.
You send me thoughts endearing and loving:
Thoughts that lift my spirits in misery.
I feel that I live in eternal spring,
And my life is a happy love story.
Your love gleams in my path when I am lost;
You, to my heart, are more precious that wine;
Your love of gold is what I treasure most;
Forever proud I'll be, to call your heart mine.
Yet I yearn for your presence to be clear,
I wish to hold you - beside me, right here.
