The Beginning

The End Of The Quest by Frank Dicksee

The air is cold around me.
The stillness of it isn't warm any longer.
Sitting amidst the emptiness of shadows,
The weight of the world intolerable.

Out of the darkness as I strode forward,
Afraid of what brazen demons I might meet,
Yet steadfast in my thoughts, hardy as ice,
I trudged along longer,
To find you.

The gleam of the evening star
Shone brightly upon my brow.
As I surrendered to the fragrance
Of lilacs in the wilderness.

Time got slow,
The sands stopped trickling down.
I saw the drop of water hanging 
From an eyelash.
Thick as the smile you wore,
As the blood that ran swifter inside me.

I knew no higher form of bond.
A bond forged in two minds.
As our hearts could become one.
As the dying ceased to die.
And the living glowed bright as angels.

I knew you were my soul.
That you held my other half of it.
My long search had ended.
My life as I know has just begun.

PS. Dedicated to my dear Enchanta on the first anniversary of our being together.

And now as I stare enthralled at these stringed words,
As you have seeked me and found me nestled in your arms,
The lilacs remain tangled up in their wild innocent scent,
The brows now tired, dripping of wisdom.

My smile shall be your canopy as long as it may remain,
For my heart has finally met its grand solace,
As you have walked the broken road that God had blessed,
I awaited your arrival, tranquil in distress.

You showed up when the stars counted right,
With eyes enamoring mine, you took me by the night,
Caressing my senses, you held me in light,
To reveal to us the life beyond foresight.

I love you. Happy Anniversary! :-)

And here's to our First Dance.

It's when I read such a beautiful piece of poetry like this one, that I feel ashamed of even attempting to write one myself. :)
