The Sweetness Still Remains


The sweetness still remains anew, a fresh
flower blooms in fields of dew glistening
from moonlight’s grace, a gentle pace as
day begins. Petite wings flutter easily in
eyes alight, colours bright to glow a sturdy
warmth within, humble welcoming in liberal
smiles which well from depths unheard,
of roots assured in fertile gathering.

Too late to stem a racing tide emotion
loosed – too soon to be a fragile bride
bemused in worthiness and tied by
chords of distant harmonies; be sure
we’ll stay beside you in the days to come
be proud for you upon your magic day.
