Contentment


Contentment
- - - - - - - -
One longing I had
One dream I had
One prayer I had
And that ended
With the perception of you
Like a wave in the sea
Like a cloud in the sky
Like a breeze in the air
Blooming in Eden
A pretty pretty flower
Moons offered
Suns offered
Paradise offered
Humbly I refused
For such a grandeur
In shape and size
Before whom all others are lies
A visage where dreams twinkle
Sense and sweetness roll
And in cheek shines dimple
Must be an angel
Of innocence and conscience
And that speaks a mind within
No more draught
Only floods I see
Of a perfect bliss
Of such a tenderness
Of love blessed and contented as sea…….

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
