You gazed into my eyes tonight  
I spied a glimmer of delight

A smile filled with heaven’s grace
So swiftly spread across your face

Alone we were, just you and me
Enraptured in sweet reverie

These times of ponder are the best
By far more special than the rest

I gazed into your eyes tonight
You filled my soul with sheer delight

You touched my hand and then my face
A moment safe from time’s erase

Those eyes that will a future see
Long after I shall cease to be

Tonight have told me I am blessed
They’ll not forsake me when I rest

They’ll carry me long past this night
Remembering long gone delight

Recalling well this time and place
When we were touched by heaven’s grace

And through your eyes I too will see
Those future days still yet to be

Long after I am laid to rest
They'll sing for me that we were blessed.

Denise: Lovely, made me think back..

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Very nice the sound, the flow
happiness to every line as I go
Well done and calming


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Denise, Denise!
You've done it again!
Wait a minute, what was that story I heard about not having any inspiration to write?
You are writing some very beautiful poetry

I love poetry inspired by children.  It's so beautiful, loving and tender.  Great job!

How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

This line got me good.."Alone we were, just you and me
Enraptured in sweet reverie"

Excellent Denise  

 Being in love with someone is more than just saying "I love you"
