The Sweetest Gift

The Sweetest Gift

A Poem by Tate Morgan

Caught in the web of years that binds our lives so tight Giving all to each desires dreams for the hopes to loves delight

My loving wife "Rebecca"

We the frail likes of which

have never known so sweet

Do love each others heart alone

in secret places that we meet


We touch each of the other

in the dusk pearl of the spring

Hold the light of love's embrace

as both our hearts take wing


Caught in the web of years

that binds our lives so tight

Giving all to each desires dreams

for the hopes to love's delight


Never was there a mood of mine

lost in the love song of embrace

That you gave my soul to sing

in wonders lit by our secret place


Think I must have eyes to see

this heart so unknown till now

Opened the light of imprisoned love

that hung on the weighted bough


Where dark the days of my past

now lit by the bright sunshine

I give the world another look

to see its sweet gift as mine

Very nice, the metered nature of the poem is practically perfect. Each quatrain is nicely measured and excellent to sound out. Very cool picture and awesome sentiments throughout.
