Lettre d' Amour

by Susanjohn

Soft gentle ways guiding my days,
with wonders ever told--
sweet lover's plea soon beckons me,
true treasures I behold.

For seldom seems, life mimics dreams,
or yearnings of our hearts.
Yet, karma weaves in tapestries...
'pon silken thread imparts.

Through gilded quill deep passions spill ...
enwrapt in sheer delight--
poetic kiss to reminisce,
desires 'neath candlelight.

Each tender word leaves senses stirred,
avowal testament:
held breathless -- awed ... 'tis solemn laud,
suave lover's pure intent.

By happenstance nor flit romance
should twin flames merge as one.
Eternal binds, ties hearts 'n minds,
a chapter's just begun.

Shall keenly wait, ne'er hesitate,
warm greetings, Dear Porteur.
So, kindly gift ... discreet 'n swift,
my Lettre d' Amour.
