Till the Grave

The gloom I feel is gone when you are here My life takes on the blush of virgin bride I bloom in love the moment you are near And strife cannot oppress when by your side A glory fills the chambers of my heart The fragrance of affection permeates Our story God has written from the start Its cadence sweet is what He orchestrates No fear has place in love that heaven gives No pain can wound so deep love cannot heal For near to paradise Communion lives I gain its comfort when your love I feel Your presence in my life is what I crave Its essence will preserve me till the grave Eileen Manassian PS...this is a double rhyme sonnet which was inspired by Andrea's Entry to a contest.

Beautiful sentiments felt deeply in this Romantic Warrior's heart, Eileen. A June-in-December swooning love poem that would melt any Snowman's heart. You got the gift, no doubt about it ... the gift of sensual truth speaking. Love is always down for a Spring breakout. Great poem, sista. Sunshine bright write. Love and joy always.
