Your sweetness if not tasted,
could never be understood
An angel created in centuries past
Intended as a being to resist my task

Who beholds your light
Will never turn away
To observe any other sight

Like weightless leaves swept up
By the lightest of winds
You fall into my heart
Your light burns resistant to
My weakened eyes,

I now see the
Depths of eternal worth.

Dear Terry, lovely poem. I'm not sure who the You is, but perhaps you don't want to say. Spirituality pours forth, is it religious? Thanks for sharing your thoughts, best, Gracy

"My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies; fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die, I can fly, my friends.” – Freddie Mercury

Just a romantic poem that can be to anyone, no religous connection just thought I'd drop a sweet one!

Lovely to see you.

Thank you...Teddy
