Far Sweeter

"Red Velvet" - Makati, 29 June 2015
“Red Velvet” – Makati, 29 June 2015

sweeter to

me

than honey

are you,

’tis true:

my waking

thought,

my every

prayer…

(is you;

for you),

in deepest

night

and bright

midday

my mind

wanders

to you.

 

and they

say

you’re not

worthy

and they

say

you are

strange

but they

will never –

can never –

fathom

the depths

of your soul,

the magic

you cast,

the stories

you tell,

the song

that lilts

from your

lips…

and i

sigh

and i

wish…

 

sweeter to

me

than sugar

are you,

’tis true:

whatever may

happen,

what may

ensue,

i pledge

it all

to you.

 

let them

whisper

and gossip

and talk –

i pay

no heed,

may as

well be

blind

but i

see

beyond that

ill-perceived

strangeness

and see

your light

your life

you.
