Wine

Stumble and fall, I’m already crawling on my way home.
I’m drunk on love and now i’m lost.
You’re like the sweetest wine that touched my lips,
my tongue loving your very taste.
Your essence so potent it burns my cheeks like fire.
Breathless I feel, my world’s already spinning,
with every sip I learn more and more,
how you’ve been refined by time,
aged by the years to perfection.
Your perfect taste feels so right for this glass,
that I press often to my lips.
I stare at you and how your color transforms to blushing red,
a tempting sight and one I would steal a kiss from.
swirling eddies start to form as I drink from the life
this stoppered bottle has to offer,
flushed, dizzy and drunk from this wine
I will love its taste and feel forever more.

Perfect

It’s best to describe you darling- “Perfect”.
Negative words shall not cross this effect,
Present you without ego, without pride,
Any inhibitions and hindrances have died

You wrapped me complete in safety’s embrace,
Showed me that true Love is prayer’s grace,
You showed me a door before I dared not cross,
For previously shallow love gave me such

You made me stronger in my beliefs,
Gave courage and hope in your “what ifs”,
You need not convince me more,
You are the one lovebird pair I longed for

Answered prayer gave me you in perfect trust
We honor it and honor us; our Love will never rust,
You speak Love between our fears and goals,
Believe in me, believe in us and Life will have no lulls
