Still Loving you

by Susanjohn

Beneath a honey-crested sky,
spark rays of hip-swayed light ...
amidst a secret garden sigh,
hope's visions soon delight.

Your gentleness rains over me;
thus, quenched, this weary soul ...
love's heeded longing's urgent plea,
with potter's hands; formed whole.

Of kindness showered in reprise,
sent burdens far away...
hence, forging trust when sadness dies,
behest; forever stay.

Such happenstance remains unknown,
how midnight dreams come true
Life's mys'tries often ne'er be shown,
yet, here I am with you."

Oh, lovelier than lyrics sung,
sweet gilded sentiments!
Love's ceaseless etchings have begun ...
beloved testaments.

You've shouldered many darkest fears,
stood firmly by my side,
erased away all fallen tears...
a beacon light to guide.

Once silenced voice, can now declare
(the Heaven's so attest),
forevermore our lifetimes' share ...
a oneness unsuppressed.

Alas! Dusk beckons petals close,
bid gardens sweet adieu ...
much needed slumber, I suppose;
but I'm still loving you!
