Sweet Salutations to my Soulmate

Sweet Salutations to my Soulmate

Sweet salutations to my soulmate, sealed with a kiss
You are etched in my heart, flaunting forever’s esquisse
Now the art canvas in my mind stays poised to paint
A portrait of perfection, of my gentle loving saint

I could never have guessed how blessed I would be
To meet the spirit of love customized for me
The treasure trove of your golden heart’s compassion
Invests in me, generously, more than I could imagine 
 
Every gesture, word, reverie of your thoughts
Expresses sincerity, the comforting truth I’ve sought
Once you hold me, the suppressed flame of my desire
Will burn ebullient proof, fixated on you, my twin fire 

All that I am, I give to you with soft surrender
Patience to this pleasure will be ours to remember
I shall greet you with joy’s sunshine, sitting on my shoulder
Sweet salutations to you, in love’s beautiful smolder

Yay!  Hi T!  I am so happy that you like this poem so well.  I put a lot of time and effort into it.  I definitely want to put this one in my collection of poetry  of romantic poems to publish next  year.  It is easy for me to be inspired by love and want to write about what influences me in life.  You think I am a world class romantic poet?  That is an awesome compliment!  Wow! I always hope that what I write will affect the readers on an emotional level.  I respect your opinion because you are such a great writer, and also because you know me personally and know my writing in progression.  Thank you for your support that means so much.  Love, Hugs, n Kisses   xox C

Wow, what an angel you are. I don't think I've ever met anyone with such a romantic heart...it's a beautiful thing. If there's a Heaven, I want you as activity planner(but only for the period of eternity). 
I love that line, 'All that I am, I give to you with soft surrender'. It's just such a beautiful thought coming from a person as nice as you. 

Another beautiful write from that amazing heart. 
Thank you for sharing that, and your heart with us. 

Love, 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew! ;)  Gosh!  Thank you!  I think if Heaven had me as their activity planner, I would get fired immediately for going overboard on the romance and love, and people would get tired of getting dipped in chocolate flavored love potions...lol.  (Well, I would want to combine chocolate in there somehow because it is a favorite of mine and also makes me feel loved.)  What a sweet thing to say though.  Thank you for all your support and understanding of my poetry.  Love & Hugs, xo Cheerie

LOL. If you were fired, I would lodge a formal complaint with the Big Guy, and have you re-instated immediately, and then let you dip me in chocolate...like Augustus Gloop. 
Love your style, Kiddo, and your heart. 

Hugs, 

Matthew.

Lololol...Augustus Gloop in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?  That does sound yummy doesn't it?  Nobody seems to understand the romantic beauty of chocolate....well, maybe you do? I am glad you hold rank with the Big Guy and have me covered...Thanks.  ;)
