You might not have noticed, but during a quiet moment in the garden of your dreams, I saw the stars winking at you.

Kindly untie the ribbon from around my heart and then unwrap the gift inside created for you from the beauty of love.

How profound the human heart is when sweet love enters its chamber beneath glittering jewels of faithfulness.

It is beautiful you who has conquered my senses for passion and the reason why I breathe your intoxicating fragrance among a crowd.

Lady Flower, in between the two lamps of life, even though one of them is filled with darkness, I find the light of happiness glowing through you.

The stars that winked at you have done justice to my poems by inspiring me to write loving words especially for the woman in you.

How can I not understand the beauty of love after finding its timeless meaning in your innocent-looking smile?

My darling, the stars that winked at you were made visible to me, because of their luminescence dancing in your eyes.

    Earlier this evening I sat out on the deck just gazing at the full moon...It was so peaceful.

    A few moments ago (and long overdue) I read this poem. The sight of the full moon this lovely summer evening surrounded by the colors of the sunset were beautiful...but even those colors paled in comparison tonight to the beauty of your words.

    "Lady Flower, in between the two lamps of life, even though one of them is filled with darkness, I find the light of happiness glowing through you. "

    I could feel beauty and tenderness and Love in each of your words. I've been away from your poetry too long. What a lovely offering to come back too.
    ╰☆╮You have touched the woman in me thank you Andy...♥

  48. Written like the true romantic that you are. Wonderful words!

  49. If I were to pick a favorite line here, I would end up picking each line!! The simplicity of your words, and the honesty with which you've written this, is really beautiful, Andy!

    And the last line was a masterpiece by itself.. really!!

  50. To Ariana: Smiling...Ariana, I hope the stars were winking at you too (smile). Thanak you for returning. I hope you won't stay away so long next time:-)

    To Judie: Thank you. I appreciate you stopping by.

    To Kavita: There is beauty in so many things around us, we just have to take a few moments to take it all in. Thank you for commenting. It means a lot.

  51. thanks for commenting on my blog mr andy! never thought if could bring tears to anyone's eyes except mine. we are really kindred spirits when it comes to poetry! some would think i'm just being emotional in writing poems but definitely i am not. its just an outlet of who i am.

    I really appreciate you following me and i will definitely add you up on my daily reads..:)

    God bless! :)

  52. Hello Jena: In blogland some of us are unknown to each other and we may never get the chance to meet, but we are all connected by our love of poetry & writing.

    When we are in emotional distress, it's sometimes easier to put pen to paper rather than try to explain with speech how we are feeling.

    Keep on writing for there will always be hungry eyes for your words (smile).

    Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you'll return again soon.

    Best wishes to you.
