FOR YOU

To gaze at the gleam
in your deep loving eyes,
across the heavens I'd soar,
to find the brightest burning star
to warm the sweet face I adore.

To you, I would give
the universe, entire,
just to see the smile on your face,
to feed the fires
deep within your heart
and the heat of your tender embrace.

For you, my love,
I would lay down my life
in a heartbeat, without second thought,
for the beat of your heart
drives the blood in my veins
and without your deep breath,
I have nought.

Like the burning sun
in the heavens above
you shed light
on my darkest dismay,
but more than that,
you're the reason I wake
and give thanks
each and every day.
