Words From the Heart With Collaboration From Susan Ashley

These words of love I give to you, my dear to have comfort in the stillness of time and meld two souls to keep love's wishes near when the length of the years and age will climb I will be your knight and loving sentry to chase away the darkness that appears and protect our days from evil's entry to guard these hearts against all shadowed fears this love will give us passions crystal clear found within the truthfulness of desire as the world will succumb then disappear we'll dance the dance of love's passionate fire the silence between heartbeats will enthrall to echo through our love's enchanting call To echo through our love's enchanting call whether in a passion's day, passion's night we'll hold these moments close to share them all as they become memories to invite well kiss the lips of love without regret and know the touch of lover's arms will stay as all the love shared is finally met I am yours until my life fades away I'll promise no more than your heart can hold and ask of you to be my ladylove share a bouquet of years as we grow old reveal dreams from life and what they're made of this heart of love we'll wantingly consume love's fragrance will linger blossom and bloom Love's fragrance will linger blossom and bloom as years become love's flowering display in our garden with its scented perfume when passion's kiss from dreamers came to stay and tender lover's fingers interlaced to snuggle our souls as to float away and gather wondrous fervor we embraced when we molded new hearts from lover's clay to form a nobler heartbeat both possess and spend this life with an unselfish soul we'll stay inside the heartbeat of caress and become romantic love's final goal as two silhouettes bask in afterglow we'll lay in shaded realms where lovers go We'll lay in shaded realms where lovers go and dream the dreams of dreamers evermore when love turns a breathless kiss we bestow the words become whispers the ears explore I came unto you with a longing gaze and offered beauty in the love you'd find my journey now ends, my past is ablaze I found in you a jewel, love so kind to hold in my palms your innocence kept you hold my honor as your trusted knight as love has found us worthy to accept we will smile to welcome dawn's amber light I climbed the farthest hills to find true love beneath the star-lit sky lovers dream of Beneath the star-lit sky lovers dream of a fantasy my passion does pursue emotions swell to fill the heights above and if I could I'd give the dawn to you a gift for you in shades of heraldry adorning you the blush of morning's glow to drape upon you all its majesty as stars recede with skies of indigo yet, Venus bright could leave the sunrise east alas, the jealous sun would hide its shine for they could not abide my passion's feast too sumptuous for entities divine affection meek knows not the Milky Way the galaxy outplays the light of day The galaxy outplays the light of day in love, we lie beneath the starry swirl the arc of bijoux takes our breath away and woos the pearly luster from the pearl but rich am I, behold the silver gleam your gaze a tender trance of moon-full depth seductive misty gems in midnight dream and sweet the sighs, my name upon your breath but fiend the day such luster fades from eyes to steal the fiery love beneath the stars and loathed if flames extinguished with goodbyes I'd melt away the candles in the jars I'll ever shape the clay of ardent feel devoted hands upon the potter's wheel Devoted hands upon the potter's wheel with fervor makes a vessel that will hold a promise told, a knight before you kneels O, temptress queen, my words a band of gold my goddess, how I love your siren song arresting and attracting from the start allure the magnet with you I belong a lure adored and never we shall part enchanted as I am I need you so as sepals hold the petals in their green I vow to hold you never let you go no ever let a deed come in between below the heaven's spiral chandelier these words of love I give to you, my dear 1/3/22 Susan, dear friend, dear poet, we have tethered our creative imagination to a universal dream of love and shared our wondrous thoughts of poetic expression to be forever bound to the hearts of romantic dreamers where wishes are made upon stars and poets seeing the same sunset with different horizons find a world of emotional beauty thank you, dear friend, dear poet...Frederic

WOW, WOW, WOW! With lines such as these my breath is stolen and my head may remain in the clouds never to return. This needs POTW…Year even. “when the length of the years and age will climb I will be your knight and loving sentry“ “ we'll lay in shaded realms where lovers go” “ and if I could I’d give the dawn to you” the arc of bijoux takes our breath away”. My heart is enchanted. A Fave! Congratulations to you both on this collaborative masterpiece! I am inspired to reach for new heights. xxoo
