A Little Drop Of Heaven

The heavens harp strings,
Played a mellow song,
Beating softly to the sound of our love,
The skies an open arch,
Romancing the wings of my heart,

Time is lost,
When I look into your eyes,
A depth of gold,
A bronzed antique brooch,

A thousand and one, floral flowers,
Scented on your wrist,
The clasp of your hand within mine,

A whisper of wind,
Drifting my name across day and night,
Sweetly, sensuously from lips of fine wine,
To tease your mouth,
Till you cry,

Our breath vying against our passion,
Fainting,
Clinging,
In your arms,

My hearts star,
My love you are,
A little drop of heaven.
