Blessed by the Gods

Nothing greater felt, no more wondrous
glory in thy heart than laying brow to thee
upon rise of morning sun
returning life to faded soul
that once was commanded by Hades
mine rescuer of wounded heart
yearning to balance scale
I before was but a lingering shadow of former self
heart as cold as winters night
I've been entombed for centuries
roaming the lands in solitude
waging war within thy self
as though I was battling Aries himself
finding you warms thine eyes and rises thy spirit
and soul just as Apollo commands the sun
within thy arms my world falls from concern
I am once more aligned with the universe
lying under dark of night as moon greets midnight sky
in the solitude of your sweet embrace
I have no need for protective armor nor sword
as you are thy shield your love my secret defense
let soft lips meet that taste of sweet wine
as tears fall from once cold and empty eyes
and once dead hands feel the warm of thy love once thought lost
I have been brought back to life
as we bask in the glory of love that Aphrodite
rained down upon us truly blessed by the Gods
thy heart feels as though it could explode
like Mount Vesuvius by a hundred fold
you looked past the demons I held on to within myself
and waited patiently and gave me a reason to wake
I took an overdue breath and found you standing
before me with open arms and a forgiving heart
and whispered in my ear" I am yours and you are mine
I would have waited a thousand years or more for you
my love, my soulmate my reason for existing till the end of time
and beyond" my one true love
I prayed to the Gods for you to return to me
and out of the mists of time we have been reunited
