A Poem by melissa's heart




Life is beauty, or don't you know that the journey is in part the fun.

The begining is the exciting part, where the adventure has just begun.

To see something for the very first time, the wonder of its creation.

To know you can explore its beauty without the limitations.


I remember when I first saw you, a wonder all your own, tall, dark, and handome.

I could tell you wanted to ravish me or even hold me for ransome.

I had to make you wait quite a while, for I knew you liked the chase.

For I was untouched, which made you want me the more, my purity you wanted to erase.


To cover me in your sweet luster of beauty, to ignite passions I never knew existed.

For you were experienced and I was not, but I was sure I'd like to be inlisted.

Like a lion after its prey, for almost a year I avoided capture, but when you

finally caught me, my body you did rapture.


You took me gently, and not by force, you made me feel unspeakable things.

Beneath the moonlight you made me fall deeper in love with you, with all the beauty that your love brings.

Yes you took my flower that I had clung to and saved just for you.

But the inexplicable beauty of its reward was pleasure I never knew.


Your love brought dreams into my life that I never knew existed.

I wanted to be the mother of your children, your wife, and too many things to be listed.

I never such beauty that in one man I would find the meaning that would be my life.

My fulfillment comes everyday that I wake up lucky enough to be your wife.


I look at the beauty of the world around me as it is covered by the morning dew.

But none of it compares my dear to the beautiful sight of you.

I still dream about your touch and its been over 25 years, for you see.

That in all these years nothing has compared to the way you keep loving me.
