She Sings My Soul

Form: Beymorlin Sonnet

The keys that hold the secret sounds of art
To please the soul with the beauty of song
Each note touching love while we are apart
By rote I feel her kiss me all night long
Each song sings to me with my lover’s soul
So strong her voice as it pulls me so near
Tonight through darkness my spirit is whole
My light is she in my shadows of fear
I feel her love even when I’m alone
Its seal is the sweetness of her last kiss
And so our two hearts beat stronger as one
I know within her is my soul’s own bliss
I weep and feel her touch comforting me
In sleeping dreams it is her smile I see
