Were You Not The Moon, a poem of love for my wife on Valentines Day

A Poem by daninstockholm

Were you not the Moon

I would stumble in my darkness

A blind man lost on a pointless highway.

Were you not a Sigh

My soul would never draw a breath

I would suffocate and my lungs explode.

Were you not a Rose 

My world would never know of beauty,

I would curse that which my eyes cannot see.

Were you not Manna

My body would never know of sustenance

And without nourishment would wither and die.

Were you not Brave

The child in me would fear to venture forth,

Each step more reticent than the one before.

Were you not Magical

The alchemy of our souls

Would fail and my sorrow poison the earth.

Were you not an Aria

This song of praise would never reach my lips.

This poem struck me as magnificent!

I find myself unable to produce a coherent comment, seeing that I lack the knowledge or "feeling" per se that would allow me to do so. Beautiful, nonetheless.

This is better than any box of chocolates, roses, or jewelry! I know she felt loved when she read this!! She's a lucky woman! This a wonderfully penned piece! It's overflowing with love and adoration! Bravo!
