from pale green to scalding red
like autumn's kiss upon the maple leaves...
the day I met you.
I was born when I held your hand.
The whole world sparkled anew
to these once blind eyes.
When I held you,
I was freed from the pain that
held me down in the past.
At last I'd found and tasted bliss.
Emotion buried deep within
the barren orchard of my bosom
suddenly bore fruit,
and I was finally able to give of myself.
When you told me you love me,
all of the darkness within fled,
and like a graceful monarch
soaring south in the autumn,
I glided through crystal blue skies
in search of your warmth.
With you beside me,
I look forward to etching
new memories of a happy life
on the rock we'll carve together.
