We Found Paradise, Its Valleys Wide And Soft Green

When your heart sang to this downtrodden and lost man
singing birds stopped singing to hear that melody;
I was broken, walking through life without a plan
if sorrows were a joke, I was their parody.
Your kiss, healed aching pains, misery's deepest pits
before, living was raging hell, a sad lost cause,
blows falling, longer they came, harder their swift hits
life had been torment, day and night without a pause.

My darling, your gentle touch cast darkness away
dawn's sweet songs began to enter this renewed heart
each singing note, romantic blessing sent my way
we had love and life, beauty at each magic start.
Each moment a dance, a waltz that was heaven sent
I joyous prisoner of my Amazon queen;
all my mistakes, this soul did so gladly repent
we found paradise, its valleys wide and soft green.

No bars needed, love cast its beloved spell
each night this appreciative heart sang anew,
you are the rarest pearl, I your protective shell
with you by my side, gifting bliss long overdue.
In dreams, we see our future, its wondrous treasures
dance floors of solid gold, you the belle of the ball
my fantasy queen giving love's joyous pleasures
of my life before you, I now have no recall.

"we had love and life, beauty at each magic start"! A blessing from God to send us Light and Love incarnated! that will "cast darkness away" and "renew the heart".. protect your gem Robert, it is your "gift bliss"! .. It is a blessing and a glee to be a "prisoner" of such an "Amazon queen"! A great write and a beauty! Definitely a FAV. A great piece of art of celestial healing from "sorrows", "raging hell's" of life and "loss"!.. A tremendous pleasure while reading! Healing! Be blessed always.

Thank you my friend. Always a pleasure to read your wonderful poetry and kind comments. Yes, Teppo and his contest theme(all three songs) inspired me to write this poem to enter. I wrote this and almost forgot to enter it! As my forgetfulness still plagues me at times .
