A Love Sonnet
(well, sort of)
The waves beside my love inspire a thought
to move beyond the line where I conceive
my love I hope you like the gift I bought
it pales next to the love that I receive.
You make me feel like grapes beneath your feet
I always like to kid my great dear love
for I enjoy your smile that is so sweet
it shows the grace you get from up above.
Can we neglect the sham which I just spoke
without a tear to shed for truth to speak
if we conform to expectations broke
we’ll lose the joy that we have found this week.
But I have found eternal bliss with you
With ups and downs I love you pure and true.
