Flash Poetry - None nearer

in poetry •  4 months ago

Your heart is still as before,
Shy but faithful, and tender,
You still fruit my sweetest dreams.

Like oceans, your love still wets me,
You still drown my cares, melt my fears,
and hold in your volumes my every tear.

You give me conversations,
And you contain my restless heart,
Safe in your sure hands

Though your hairs grow gray,
And your sparkling eyes dim with age
In my heart, you are newer everyday

Now as then, I will love you the same,
Faithfully I will wait for you however long
And gladly I will confess the truth in my heart

You are my only. My everything,
There’s no one else above you,
None nearer, none dearer
