My Shell

My Shell

A Poem by Rose Downing

I wrote this years ago when I was a fool in love. This poem helped me to win a young girls heart. It's still one of my most favorites.

You are the sunset, mine is the rising tied.
Together we are ships out on the horizon.
When I'm with you I feel I have nothing to hide.
Like stars we go burning trough a new dawn rising.
And how with you, I can feel harmony chime,
Two pieces of the puzzle click together.
You fill my soul to beyond the point of rime.
Leaving this poem unfinished forever.
