Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

You Are My Love


You are my love, guardian of my heart,
Providing your strength when I'm weak;
You are my voice when I cannot talk,
You're the words that I cannot speak

You are my love, my very breath,
You're the moon in my starless sky;
You're the reason God created love,
You're the reason I no longer cry

You are my love, you flow through my veins,
Crimson droplets of ice and fire;
You wake me from a restless sleep
To whisper in my ear your desire

You are my love, you're my inspiration,
You're the only song I want to sing;
You are a letter written to my heart,
You're my love, you're my everything

You are my love, you're my happiness,
Long ago, sorrow waved its farewell;
Words never falter on your eloquent tongue,
As all my anxieties you quell

You are my love, I'm content with my fate,
Pages written in the realms above;
And caressing your head like a silvery cloud,
I drink the moonlight....and it turns into love!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
