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.
