Another day has come and gone.
The moon is in full view.
I lie in bed and marvel at
The beauty that is you.

I touch your cheek with gentle hand,
Smile as my fingertips
Trail slowly down to rest upon
The fullness of your lips.

Angelic in repose you are.
Your face sets off a glow
That only lovers who can give
Their all will ever know.

Your eyes, your ears, your nose, your lips
Your cheeks, your brow, your hair
Combine to make a masterpiece
I find  beyond compare.

Although your face in stillness lay
I see it as you smile
I see it as you face the day
In your own pixie style.

I see it as you frown at all
Injustice you may find
I see it take angelic tones
When you're just being kind.

I see it as the teardrops fell
When sadness came to call
I see it pensive, lost in thought,
I see it rise and fall.

I think back to the golden days
I thought would never pass
When fingers slid down silky skin
Instead of hardened glass.

Our lives were filled with memories
Impossible to keep.
I gently lay your picture down
And cry myself to sleep.

ooh.  Reads like chocolate.  I could almost
feel the crisp of the sheets and then--
I have been undone.  Very Beautiful.  very stirring...

Balladeer~
Even with the twist ...
it's exquisite poetry.
The master story-teller has rested
and come back with a fervor.

Truly beautiful, my friend.
Love ya' ~*Marge*~

I loved this. It went from love poem to dark in a matter of seconds, I loved the transition.

Dang, here I thought, Balladeer how romantic! And then comes that twist your so famous for, and a crushing ending!  

YOUR BACK! EXCELLENT WORK!

Thanks to you all for your warm comments. I had originally intended to write a simple, romantic poem but my O Henry chromosome kicked in and, well, this is what happens! Thanks for reading.
