A tender kiss I leave for thee
Upon thy cheek when you wake,
This day I leave on turbulent sea
Where chances are thy lover take.
Sheddeth not a sorrow-filled tear
Thine heart belongs the thee through time,
Though watery grave my end I fear
‘Tis enough to know thine heart is mine.
Pray for thee my lover pure
In this our night of last embrace,
Though parted love survives I’m sure
In memory of thy angelic face.
Thine smile comforts as farewell I bid, for journey toward mysterious lands,
Thy strength in sorrow thou surely hid, as gently you kiss my trembling hands.

Thank you so much and who would know better than you my exceptionally talented friend. 🙂
It’s rarely you write a piece geared towards this direction. But every chance I get to read love pieces from you, I get to smile as I feel each word written so sincerely. Very nice and sweet, Dom.
Safe travels, too!
