For my muse. He knows who he is.

You are my light, my reason for writing

these words onto this parchment page.

You are the hope in the darkness that

keeps me from breathing my last.


You are the song in my heart that will

never be answered, only spoken in question.

You are the beauty in the water that flows

through my life, the mouth to my river.


You are the rain that cleans my skin, the

lightning that struck and stole my heart.

You are the freezing ice that crept into

my soul when you said we'd never work.


I send you this rose to make sure you remember.

I send you this rose as a sign of my love.

I send you this rose to show you your beauty ...

I send you this rose to tell you I love you.

Wonderful poem! I just love everything about it. Love can be so complicated, but, you have managed to make it seem so beautiful and easily understood. Thanks...
