Rush, shush, hush
My love
Sing to me softly
Tonight

Your melody relives
Sweet memory
Playful banter
So shimmery

Your very nature
Intriguingly invisible
Mysteriously an essence
I cannot describe

Captivating my dreams
Of when we first met
Opposites exact
Between our worlds

You came as the snow
I welcomed your purity
White innocence
As foaming skies

Rainbows dance
On your sapphire skin
Flitting, whispering
Across your beauty

Untouched, unmarred
Guided solely
You paths were carved
By the Masterís touch

Knowing no boundaries
Save for His words
In abundance you gave
Giving back to His name

You are simplicity
Transparency alone
The gravity of your strength
Is never judged

Free as your destiny
Chained for originality
You are the river
That runs my life
Washing my mistakes
With His light

Reflections of your example
Call me to obedience
Reminding me again
Of eternal promises

Carry me swiftly
Drenched in your jewels
To the cleansing fountain
Of His forgiveness

Very nicely done. I love the light, airy feeling of the verses--much like a gently flowing river. Lovely descriptions and quite thought provoking.

I really enjoyed this one. It's probably my favorite of yours! Beautiful imagery and very fluid. Good job!

Very good poem. I especially liked the last stanza. Very encouraging.
