To My Valentine

To my Valentine As the full moon lights up the sky, So you brighten my lonely life To fill it with wishes true and high And make my life an easier strife; The mere sound of your joyful voice Ignites truly my whole being, Drives away all nasty noises And kindles the beats of my feelings; The rapture of your gentle smiles Elevates the pace of my breath And vibrates in me for a whole while Like the perfume of a perfect wreath; Our life has witnessed ups and downs, At times with some petty squabbles Or sometimes with a paltry frown, But down with love they were settled; Our own trust has been cemented Not with wild words to quell down fears, But through deeds and actions dispensed To express mutual love and care; Our life has been an art of living With the tale of love and sharing, Of live and let live together And of caring for each other: When fate had dealt a blow to my health You were ever by my bedside, Caring for me as would no-one else Without swinging a single sigh; When hopes for healing had dipped low And my spirits had suffered a blow, You were ever just by my side To turn around the lowly tide. While our youthful hue has gone by, While the wrinkles of age are at hand And the wings of time fly up high, Let me set down our tie with my pen; As long as the moon will light the sky, As long as stars will shine up high, As long as the rays of the sun Will brighten the distant horizon, As long as waves will flap the reefs, As long as will stand mountains and cliffs, As long as rivers will flow to the sea, As long as earth will offer a lea, As long as will chime the clock of time, You shall for me be my Valentine, As beyond our bodily tie The union of two souls does lie; Our love will outlive our last breath, Its perfume will spread far and wide As long as will exist on earth Gardens with two roses side by side; Our tie is not just corporal, Nor is it at all temporal, But sure, sacred, and spiritual And above all it`s eternal.

Thanks my friend for appreciating my poems. It is really very encouraging. After the poem to "To my Valentine", I was inspired to write the poem "Divine Tie", which depicts my lived and living relationship with the Supreme Lord. May the Lord bless you and those near and dear to you. Amen.
