DEAR Lori, my lady, my darling divine My vision of beauty, my radiant shine More lovely to see than the tulips you bring That blossom for me in the sips of your Spring YOUR lips are the dells of the wells that I drink The pink in the blues of the bells in my sink The sweet summer smells in the fragrance of rose That rise in the swells of the scents in my nose THE sparkle of you is the dew on my lawn Remarkable too in the blue of my dawn The magic you bring is the fun in your eyes A trick that you spring on the one you surprise YOUR love is the season I savor in Fall The very same reason I favor them all The fact that you trust me is part of your way To say that you must be the heart of my day THE bubble you burst is my pride of command The trouble you cursed by the chide of my band The fool that is me is no true folly dodger Perhaps what you see is a blue Jolly Roger The stain of my sin is the shame that I wear The pain I am in for the blame that I bear The loss of my booty I foolishly spent Will not fill my duty to pay for the rent The pleasure of you is the peak in my life The treasure in you that I seek in a wife The measure of trust that we need to survive Will tether or bust by the greed in our drive To 'bide in your glow is to bask in your light The side that you show for the task in your sight The row that we hoe in our quest to succeed Will slow in the flow of the rest that we need THE sorrow of loss is the second you choose To borrow the cross for the minute you lose The sting that we lack in our struggle ahead Will bring us right back to our snuggle in bed THE lonely all week have no time for remiss But only your cheek is sublime to my kiss The rapture I seek is no climb of regret To capture the peak of a crime to forget THE blame that you sow is the seed of mistrust A flame that you throw at my deed of disgust The kindness you show by the smile I see Is something you grow by the mile for me DEAR Lori, my lady, the one I adore I beg thee, to take me, and love me once more My love and devotion are all I can give But time is the truth in the way that I live.

Thank you, Jeanne. I'm glad this one worked, because submitting "Thru Maritime Miles" parts 1 thru 5 will probably give me away at this point. Thank you once again, look forward to reading you soon.

Sam, thank you for such kind words. If people need some background to all of this, parts one thru five are also available on PoetrySoup. Eventually, all fifty parts will be available. Good to hear from you, my friend.

Bryan, congratulations on your top of the podium win. This is charming with a "dashing" bit of pirate whimsy merged into the authenticity of a deeply romantic - growing - relationship. All the best to you.

Another win for you, I see, and another gem of a write ... romantic and charming, crimped with an edge of shadowy reflection. Really enjoyed this, Bryan, and worth multiple reads. Excellent - fave-ing this as well! Blessings to you and yours! :o)
