Thanking Heavens Above For Your Every Breath

Thanking Heavens Above For Your Every Breath Walking a most fine line betwixt and between life and death thanking Heavens above for your every breath, myself, my heart, my soul- and my passion aflame your gasping sighs, your kiss, prove our Love is no game. Love's truth in the minutes, the hours, the blissful days beauty within your most tender and graceful ways, the pure honey sweet of waking at dawn with you satisfaction with life and true loving we two. Within the great ecstasy that your soft touch brings in that moment, that epic joy - this grateful heart sings both sun and sky smile upon such a wedded pair I thank God, in joining we both treasure and share! Walking a most fine line betwixt and between Life and Death. Thanking Heavens above for your every breath! R. J. Lindley, July 10th. 1973 Sonnet, ( Romanticism, Searching for Love's Holy Grail ) Old Note-- July 12th 1973 May this note , this letter stir the flames in your heart With the prayer that Love never allows us to part That vow we both swore and Life we now each hour, each day live. Bears passionate embraces and gems born that we each other give. New Note: May, 7th, 2020 This from the graveyard of youthful love From the memory of what Life often brings about That what is soul deep may yet prematurely perish And we may fail to hold on to that which we most cherish..

Thank you my friend. Dark must take a backseat to the blessings and gleaming light of day... Tho' its reality must be acknowledged IF one wants to understand the many tragic paths we mortals too oft take.. God bless..
