"True Love Is My Rose"
True Love Is My Rose
Hush, hush, hush,
hush, hush, hush
----------<@ True is but the blue that permeates all aspects of you.
Rustic red, wilting; budding in bloom, or aged,
Unchained is my heart...for all dues you have paid.
Evermore are we, to love; bound, as is life to dust.
Love, our drawbridge to age and time--where you my world defines.
Oh, how red your dress as it unfurls; if I may...this dance?
Valentine mine; pray not weep, for tears could never be yours without being mine.
Entranced...let us, with love: whirl, for every moment reclaims of the past.
If tomorrow dawns in your embrace, let us smile for the sun on your face;
Sweet though the dream...yet, here, now, are we, as close to forever as could be.
Magic, they say, is but fantasy; yet, we know it is real for those who see;
You and I, in silhouettes: mould--where bright the moon and stars enfold.
Rose, I thank you for all that you are, and all that you make me...
Ostentatious you could never be--in any ivory tower see.
Shadows lengthen with the fading notes of our song,
Enclosed now in sleep--a sight to reap...'my Rose,' forever to keep. ---------<@ -------------------------
