Open it, itís for you,
a simple gift, really,
inside this tiny, shiny box,
the golden gilt part of me.

Just a poem, inscribed in ink,
of the indelible kind,
etched in faint memoirs
of past lives so entwined.

As though you were heaven sent,
just in time to save me from me,
for you could only be an angel
proof He exists in trilogy.

If I could only express in words,
this peace inside of my heart,
this language lacks romance,
but here is at least a start.

Know that Iím fraught with faults
afraid a tad more than a few,
but youíve shown me a path of light
that lead me straight to you.

If you can forgive my past sins,
see something worth salvaging,
Iíll hold you dear, to my heart,
give you gifts only love can bring.

So much in the offering.

Corinne, this is hopeful, fragile and sweet.
A prayer of lucky love for you tonight!

If only we can accept each other for "who we are" rather than someone we'd like to mold each other into.... life would be much simpler, wouldn't it?..

Nice job, my friend..
