The true eternal fire

If I could say what I want,
I’d voice my sacred view,
Our love could be so pure and true,
If you would love me to .

High above the rooftops,
Pages out of view,
The music calls so loud,
To me,
So fair and good and true .

So verse would let me talk to you,
You’d understand my plight ,
Help me now to guide,
Me through,
My tough and struggled fight .

Look down to the banks of the pure blue sea,
Go way down through the tide,
The beat will drive me right and good,
On to the lighter side .

And as the eternal fires burn,
My flame just burns for you,
It’s shining, burning, fresh, warm light,
Is all that guides me through .

This light I have is all I need,
Eternal, strong and true,
As my time just rolls away,
Speeding out of view .

I am forced to use my brain,
That knows not what to do,
The music comes,
The music goes,
My heart will guide me true .

And as I look upon you now,
I come to realise,
This flame is strong in side of me,
It knows not how to hide .

So when I see a candle burn,
I’ll always think of you,
The one who lights the holy path,
The song,
So sweat and pure,
And true .

I shall hold your warmth to me,
This chill I feel to,
This cold will creep away from me,
From fire,
Love and you .

As this ice just melts away,
Tears run from my deepest eyes,
So pure,
So good,
So fair,
So right,
I am happy,
Now I’ll die .

Beautiful poem, and welcome to passions!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

Hi angelswing!
As a reply to my poem you said "If I could write like this I would be laughing"
So please start now and don´t ever stop!!
(Now it´s me who sits in awe and wishing I could write like this)

An Angles wing has touched today
welcome there poet I shall greet and say
With words your surely have your way
A poem in colours of ray



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

Well, I've read it now, and I'm glad that I did - it deserves another airing.  It's very beautiful....
"I am happy "
....and truthful?  You deserve to be.  Keep going.

Beautiful poem, I love your style. I am a proof reader at heart so I will suggest you go back and edit this line, The song,
So sweat and pure,
And true .


(Sweet) I know that is what you meant! Hope you are not offended, it is just such a beautiful poem I hate to stumble over that word.
