Sempiternal

Sempiternal

Come to me, my love, when our deferred dreams collide
The prudent proof you already knew lives inside
Recognized over lifetimes, seasons slept, nocturnal
But the love that churns with chide, lives sempiternal
I have loved you endlessly, with thoughts reserved
Waiting to convey the truth, that this love deserved
Seduction scenes bait and play, waiting to unveil
The dreamscape strategies we sensed would soon prevailย 

Arise to rousing realms of lavished affectionย 
Feel my infinite kiss, raised in resurrection
I shall never pull away from your warm, gouache grace
The eternal gentleness chiseled on your face
A new sunrise testifies all the reasons why
Love's dawning day comes, to sweetly celestify
And my heart heaves when it conceives Heaven's view
To see your tenderness with gaze of follow through ย ย 
ย 
As your arms reach to hold me, in passion's parlayย 
I hold on, grateful, in this sentimental stay ย 
Intensely aware of the beauty you possess
Staring into eyes that comprise soft caress
Excuse my tears that fall like diamonds on your skin
I waited ages for our love affair to begin
Each word stirs, preserved, every touch feels vernalย 
I treasure our rapport, loving sempiternal

Hi Lisa.....Thank you....Yes, it is another one of my very sentimental and emotionally motivated writes.....I just love LOVE...lol.ย  I love the picture I found for this one, but it only shows about 25% of the picture....You cannot really tell that the lovers are lying down with her beautiful red dress sprawling and his arms pulling her to him...I just found it so romantic.ย  Love should be "sempiternal".....forever and without end.....I just like the world and found it poetic to use.ย  Thank you for your kind support.ย  xo :) Love n Hugs

Cheerie,ย 
You're an Angel. That's beautiful. I'm not sure how you manage to pack so much loving emotion into a poem, but I'm in awe of you! So gorgeous!(and the poem, too). I LOVE the way this poem exposes astounding love not just until the end of time, but before they even met, like it was always meant to be, and always will be. Oh my heart. You're amazing!ย 
Favorite lines are many, but there are some unbelievable ones, like:ย 

'Excuse my tears that fall like diamonds on your skin
I waited ages for our love affair to begin'ย 

(that's my favorite, I think)ย 

And,ย 

'I have loved you endlessly, with thoughts reserved
Waiting to convey the truth, that this love deserved'ย 

And,ย 

'Come to me, my love, when our deferred dreams collide
The prudent proof you already knew lives inside'ย 

And,ย 

'Intensely aware of the beauty you possess
Staring into eyes that comprise soft caress'ย 

Just so many, beautiful, heartfelt, lines! It's hard to not pick them all.ย 
Beautiful writing, Cheerie. Just gorgeous. Please sign me up for your book!ย 

Love,ย 

Matthew.ย

Hi Matthew! Well, you practically just pasted my full poem in your comments with all your favorite lines you picked out, but that is so honoring that you like so many!ย  Thank you!ย  I have always felt like you genuinely are a fan of my writing, and it motivates me to believe in myself when someone as intelligent and creative likes my work. You are too flattering!ย  But don't stop, okay?ย  ;)ย  I hope to get my book out this year, but you know how slow I am about writing poetry, and I am very particular about which ones I want to go in my book.ย  I hope in the end, it will be a book I am proud of.ย  I will definitely let you know when it is slated to be out.ย  Thank you for just always being so supportive and encouraging.ย  Means so much.ย  Love n Hugs, Cheerie xoย ย

Hey T....Oh darn!ย  I was hoping I stumped you with a new word, but you know so many good vocabulary words, so I should not be surprised. Lol. I like the meaning of sempiturnal, and thought it made perfect sense to describe a love of all ages...that soulmate kind of love that has to find its other half and go on in a love sustained forever....There is so much I do not understand about love...but I do think that is always worth pursuing to figure out what God had in mind for it.ย  I think it is the mystery alone that makes me obsessed with it.ย  And, well, if you think about it, God IS LOVE itself, so any form we experience here in this reality is a shadow of what is to come....and very worth drawing near to.ย  I am so happy you liked it enough to pin.ย  I was feeling good with how this turned out, and it will be in my book.ย  Bless you for all your support.ย  Love n Hugs, C xoย ย

Hi Being Me! Thank you!ย  I added that line you like at the end...and I am so glad that I did....as I second guess myself sometimes when I make changes.ย  I am so happy you felt the soft warmth of love...as that was my intention for this one....nothing more....Bless you. xo ;)ย  Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

Another beautiful love story, that I had to pin.ย  Its warmth and passion ignites its readers.

My love for you is endless
Sempiternal as The Sun
The moment that we first touched
My life was then begun

All my love,
