You - A Love Poem

Sometimes I write poetry rather than history articles. Enjoy this short but sweet write.



Before me a bustling life scene with a lack, one vacant space

Then you. Voices fade, replaced by two singing heartbeats

I feel the sublime strength of your being, your infinite grace

You smile, I smile, we smile. Souls divinely speak, love entreats

From a moment so mundane springs a natural phenomenon

How extraordinary that my search for you, for us, ends here

Utter relief that after so many sorrows, false loves come and gone

You stand there so true, so free. My missing piece is you, you so near

I see my future play in scenes reflected in your enchanting eyes

You must feel what I feel? The heat of desire in our private furnace

You glance away. Don't leave me, don't ignore destiny as she cries

You look back, you hear her, us. Realization beams from your face

I could have borne the wait no longer. Blissful kismet, heaven sent

There's no fear of our tomorrows. I submit in your bewitching sphere

Me, a rapt stargazer witnesses your heart in its sharp orbital ascent

Two energies have ignited a love that will never die. Our time is here.

I is now we.
