Dust of Gold

It never came as dancing flames
To set my heart on fire,
Nor did it come as stormy seas
That filled me with desire.

There was no pounding in my breast,
No tingling down my spine;
But just a sweet exchange of smiles,
Which told me you were mine.

Nor did the moon extend her glow
Upon your countenance -
No stars did ever light your eyes;
Enough that you should glance.

Such passion never touched my soul
That taunts the craving mind;
But just a tenderness within,
I deemed I’d never find.

You did not veil my eyes with mist,
Nor take my breath away.
Just sweet contentment stole my heart;
Now with you, I shall stay.

It came, a shimm’ring dust of gold
Upon my soul to fall -
Transported on a floating cloud,
Forever to enthral.

And now through life I’ll ever walk
With you here by my side -
Forever I will cherish you,
My love and life-long guide.

    Some chose of the ego in a mate, others from the heart, this one seems to be of the heart, it is certainly written that way, touching love story Valerie.......

    Though the title of poem is dust of gold but poem itself a gold in it...
    Nor did the moon extend her glow
    Upon your countenance -
    No stars did ever light your eyes;
    Enough that you should glance....words flow with intense emotions, deep love & beautiful sentiment..brilliant job ma'm
