THE VESSEL OF MY LIFE

the-vessel-of-my-life

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.
