A Rose Through The Heart
Sweet, Turtle Dove, enamored
I sing of my love so powerful,
so true. You are a Rose, an arrow
shot clear through my heart.
Your honeyed words drip down
and cover my soul. I dance
in the rhythmic beat of Love's song.
Come, be my gentle Dove. Soar
with me to far beyond, to Love's
eternal skies. Lover of my dreams,
lay beside me. While I stroke
your silken curls. My fingers
play a tune of their own...send
pulsing messages, electricity
through the very core of your being.
All the while, enamored I sing
a Valentine ballad to you. With each
new beat, with each new arrow shot,
a Rose goes straight through my heart.
