to look upon you against this sky is grace
i trace the contours of your skin and face
the sun shines on you
your eyes glisten like jewels
smiling, you turn towards me
those lips so gentle and petite
yet to kiss them would spark a fiery flare
the wind softly whispers through your hair
your beauty is haunting and eternally praised
in solem reverance, my eyes are raised
honesty, respect, and commitment i give to you
and all of my love is also given to thee too
to take your hand in mine is a treasure
to honour you with all i have is my pleasure
let us begin this long journey together
through the good and the bad forever

Hey haven't posted anything in a while...just wondering if everything's good down south! Send me a wave! Can't get enough of your poems, can't wait to read new ones! ;)

(had to delete the previous post cause it was full of typos...hihi)
