Two Decades of Love

Our dalliance ignites passionate nights,
            with halcyon breath and dulcet embrace-
I pretend not to see him as he writes
            a letter of love showing his true grace.

           He’s considerate with fine etiquette,
a good man who bestows utmost respect-
           Two decades of a love so definite, 
plethora of hope I did not expect. 

           Sapphire echoes when he unleashes me,
ivory stardust spreads over the sheets-
            showing more passion for felicity,
wonder if he knows my heart, he completes.

I rest my weary ahead against his chest-
            resplendently comprehending I’m blessed.
