The Wonder of You

Sometimes in my silence, I'm just thinking of
The wonders and beauty, the power of love
For words cannot ever relate what is true
The power and wisdom, the wonder of you

Sometimes I don't say what I feel in my heart
For my love is too deep for the words to impart
I sit here just watching the things that you do
And think to myself of the wonder of you

I slowly awake in the promise of light
And study your face as you dream through the night
The morning comes creeping in soft fragile dew
Let it fall in a mist on the wonder of you

My spirit is hovering over your face
And witnessing love in its beauteous grace
And while you are still, I attempt to consume
All the wonders of love and the wonder of you

Sleep now, my love, through the dark of the night
And I'll wake you in shadows of dawn's early light
For that is the moment most precious and new
To give in return all the wonder of you

Elizabeth Santos

Breathtakingly beautiful...I absolutely love this Liz.
Geez...no wonder I'm sick, with poets like you here, I'd much rather read than sleep

This is wonderous Liz and so romatic and of course written with a grace that always becomes you.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Elizabeth,
Pretty heavy stuff by the start of a puff.
The wind did gain until a hurricane.
And now you've swept him off his feet.
A full fledge storm of descriptive sweet.
You are a wonder and a very talented poetess. And I humbly bow to your prowess.  
Love Sy
You poem is exquisite in case you didn't get the message.

Hoot, Now get better. I can feel your poet pen itching to scribble something. Could this poem have inspired a thought? I guess we'll find out
Thanks, Hoot
Liz

Martie, Always the perfect words from her pen, even in a simple response. Well, we'll just have to dicuss these poems over coffee, won't we? See you soon!
Love ya,
LIz

Hey Liz could you give me a website address to something that talks about meters because I don't know about that stuff. I just write my stuff and call it a day. I'll be very graeful of it though. Beautiful poem, though!

I can only do one thing
agree with all the reply above
Very well done


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

I think you've outdone yourself on this one, Elizabeth.  Wonderfully romantic, soft and tender in its loving ways.  I love the repetition of the phrase "the wonder of you".  It drives home the overwhelming feeling you have for the subject, the magic of these stolen moments, the purity of your motive.  Pefect!

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley
