Beseech The Night (Sonnet I)

by debbylyn   Jul 24, 2007

A universe within thine eyes delight
Tears well and spill the heaven's mirrored stars
Celestial dreams in hazel tinted night
Eternal pools displaying rippled scars

Your sweet caress my empty arms denied
Longing words fall to silent lonely cries
A poet's verse to quell the ebbing tide
Through lips bereft of whispered breaths and sighs

Oh Love! beseech the night's divine intent
One last bequest of morning's perfect smile
Against thy breast a beating heart content
Embracing gentle comfort for a while

Day breaks her golden glorious sorrow
Blissful slumber keep us 'til the morrow

To My Love Barry
