Your love is like the most precious rose,
grown healthy and strong in fertile soil
that has been cultivated with care
by a greatly skilled gardener
who is blessed with the wisdom
passed down by many generations
about how to feed the roots
with the proper nutrients to ensure
that the flower reaches a stage of perfect fruition.
Your love is like the most delicious wine,
aged in oak barrels for several years
before being uncorked
to allow the sweet aromas to rise for the senses.
The first sip swirls around my mouth,
teasing my tongue with hints of vanilla and lilacs,
sending happy sensations through my mind.
The initial glass brings a smile to my lips
as I taste tones of earthen flesh
from the region where the grapes were grown.
The second glass intoxicates my blood,
and a fierce longing to hold you tightly
increases dramatically with passionate yearning.
The emptied bottle leaves me laughing,
happily soaring with the spirits
of a drunken Dionysian revelry,
imagining you pressed closely to my chest
as we spin and twirl
under the light of the moon and stars
to our own special tune
while creating a unique tango never before danced.
Your love is like the most exquisite jewel,
excavated from the deepest core of the planet
where the molten magma of volcanic fury
matches the heat that burns in my heart
when it synchronizes with the beauty
that is birthed from your angelic soul.
Not just one jewel, but a thousand;
one to adorn a golden chain
that hangs around your gorgeous neck
in a spot that I can kiss close to your breast;
one to dangle from each of your elegant ears
that I can whisper into gently during the evening;
one to fit smoothly upon your finger
that I can place there with a sacred vow
to cherish you always beyond the ends of time;
one to clasp securely
upon every ornamented space of a crown
that can be held atop the hair on your head
and worn as a holy halo
so that all the men and women of this world
know that you are the Divine Goddess Queen of my life.
Your love is like the original pulse of creation,
infused with the Holy Spirit Vibration,
embedded in the core of the first atom
as the Big Bang explosion erupts outward,
sending a signal of evolution’s song
to scatter throughout the vast cosmos
before finally coming to rest
in the depths of my heart
where your sweet symphony of salvation
constantly hums with the flow of blood
that circulates through the veins of my system.
Your love is like the rising waves of an ocean,
pulled by the forces of a magnetic moon,
infinitely connected with the consciousness of nature,
lifting my soul to the highest possible peak,
carrying my body atop a powerful tide
as the sound of splashing water
strongly surges through my ears
and then gently sets me down on the shore
where your arms are waiting to steady me once more
with the divine comfort of your holy touch.
Your love is like a beautiful leaf in autumn,
falling from a tree where I sit in the woods
to land upon the page being written in your honor,
granting me a wish that you’ve already fulfilled,
gracing me with the harmony of a happy moment,
guiding my thoughts to align more closely with yours,
reminding me that the intimacy shared
between two swans in perfect synchronization
is more precious than any other emotion on earth.
Your love is like a waterfall from Valhalla,
pouring down to earth in heavy waves
that wash away the dirt from my skin,
baptize my soul with a spiritual salve,
and rinse out the speck from my eyes
so I can clearly see
the beautiful rainbow that appears
as a reflection of your heart
after the storm has passed.
Your love is like sugar in the morning,
scooped into a cup of coffee
to sweeten the early hours of each day
with a wonderful taste
that teases my tongue
and sends an electric buzz
surging through the blood
while every cell of my system
is lit up in energetic ignition.
Your love is like a song of the holy spheres,
an opera of God that bursts in the heavens,
a melody whispered from the lips of angels,
an echo that resonates throughout all of creation,
a powerful note infinite in its scope,
an elemental sound eternal in nature,
