Well, I was going to save this one. . . but I couldn't wait any longer. . .

This poem is dedicated to Michael and poetFemmeFatale. . . they have been both an inspiration and a blessing to me and this is just a small thank you to both of them and my wish that they be happy. . .

From out of the Darkness came his soul
Searching for someone to make him whole
A Poet by trade
A man of gentle ways
A man on whose heart time and love had taken their
      toll.

She was a woman, graceful and refined
A true Femme Fatale, it could not be denied
A woman of Passion
But, behind the fashion
Was a woman who had spent nights alone, and cried.

Theirs is a story just beginning to be told
Another chapter in the book of love so old
Together this day
Now and for always
They have shown us a love more precious than gold.

Oh wow Sven, I don't even know what to say...You had left me the message that you had written something for us, and I found it here tonight....I wasn't expecting something so beautifully & delicately crafted - what a pleasant surprise!  I am really honored that we have had this much of an impact on you, to inspire a piece such as this.....I know Michael will love it...I'll let him know he needs to stop by and see this!  I myself have been in awe at what Michael and I share...It just flows effortlessly from us...through us.  We had both pretty much given up on finding one to complete us...and then one day, magic started happening, from out of nowhere....The rest is history!  We were just swept away - - Thank you so much for this lovely tribute!  I can't find words to show my gratitude...  *** curtsies   And thank you for this added bit of encouragement....Gennifer

I apologize it took me so long to find this, Sven.  Thank you so much.  I am honored by your words and glad to have had (with Gen) such an impact on you.  You're right, the story is just beginning, here's to many more great chapters lying ahead.  God bless you, and Happy New Year.

A beautiful tribute and poem Sven.

the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
