~ Happy Birthday CHERIE ~

{On The Wings Of Your Attention}

~ Happy Birthday CHERIE ~

How can I describe the reflection of you
In every star or vision I see
A longing look into the delicacies
Of raindrops, and pristine purity

I can find you there, between the drops
Dancing a marvelous minuet
With seventeenth century pleasure
Courting the merriment

Of Love's trials and tribulations
Leading to rose-colored brooks
That wind their way through genial kisses
And winged wishes upon longing looks

From angelic places and Davinci faces
That gleam as reflections of you
And your subtle features nobly described
As heavenly vistas and empyrean views

Seen through the eyes of fairy tale princes
And the eyes of the holiest of men
Praying for your Love to engulf them
To enchant them all over again

For in the eyes of divine implication
Yours is the bloom of destiny's creation
An alabaster ballerina placed perfectly atop
A spinning wheel of angelic rotation

So graceful that the entire world stops
Hoping for just a glimpse of you
Applauding your work on your labor of Love
So inventively, precisely, produced

When your gift shows, your poetry glows
Like the beautiful movement of a symphony
Where my heart skips a beat, my Love incomplete
Without your poetry inspiring me

For I am shot from the cannon
Of your most loving dimension
And soar most happily
On The Wings Of Your Attention...

Awwww....Thank you, Tony!  You and the kids have been awesome to me today.  Even though my birthday is officially tomorrow the 28th,Thanksgiving steals the spotlight tomorrow.,..lol  But this lovely poem touches my heart.  That is such a sweet thing to write me a birthday poem and honor me this way!  This flows so romantically and every line is so well thought and sentimental.  It makes me feel good that  you say my poetry inspires you and that you love me for that aspect of who I am too...Thank you for remembering me this way with such a sweet poem.  You have my attention!  Lol  Love n Hugs, C xoxo

'Of loves trials and tribulations
leading to rose coloured brooks' ...and that is it isn't it, what true love is all about, through thick and thin. You two share a truly beautiful love, and you share it with us ...the reader also...to remind us that it does in fact still exist. Truly beautiful and heartfelt piece to your beautiful wife. Thankyou for sharing Tony ...hugs to you both💕

Oops...no intention to be bold 🤪 just trying to say in my own clumsy way, your verses of love to each other are truly inspiring to those of us who are somewhat jaded by the whole experience. For me true love is about that exactly, through( thick and thin)....IV always fallen through the ice!! 😁 Happy birthday Cherie, hope you have a truly wonderful day ...hugs 💕
