THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
From your heart cascades a true love
A perfect love that never frown
A doyenne of circumstances
Changing worst to best.
In you have I found a paradise
A paradise that made me smile at the storm
Storm engulfing me to death
Death that made me feel palpable to my very self
Knocking, knocking, knocking
There, I soliloquized
Where comes my help
Nowhere to find hope
Left in despair
And my eyes going deem?
Suddenly the nooks and crannies of me became nonchalant
Where I could feel myself rocking in a vessel
A vessel scintillating with love
Sparkling, sparkling, sparkling
It rectified my woes, and gratified me
A vessel that brought me comfort and hope
A vessel that brought me treasure and smile
Truly I’ve found a paradise
A paradise that made me smiles at the storm
Yes! You are the vessel of my life
The true love of my life

It's a wonderful feeling when one finds love.
Just be careful.. don't make him your everything.
Nice description of feeling.
