I felt particularly inspired this morning! I give you…
I dedicate this piece
To the most beautiful woman in the world.
This piece sings her praises
Like a choir of angels sings around the Throne of Grace
This piece swears loyalty
Like a defendant swears to tell
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but…
The truth is, this piece is totally smitten
It is the poem to end all love poems.
It is the beginning and has no ending
Because this piece swears it believes
In reincarnation –
This piece will be reborn after this age
And will still be head over heels in love with you.
This piece is dedicated to you
Like a newborn baby is dedicated to God at birth
Dedicated to defend your honour
Like a gallant knight charging into battle
With his lady’s favour tied in a knot
Above his elbow.
This piece is willing to suffer ridicule
For its unwavering devotion
Like a zealous disciple who is convinced
That he has found the way, the truth, and the light
And no one can convince him otherwise.
This piece is dedicated to the most beautiful girl in the world.
Dedicated to the one who makes this piece go silent whenever she smiles.
Dedicated to the one whose courage rivals that of the Spartans
Dedicated to the one who is the sun, and this piece is the earth,
Caught in the gravitational pull of love.
This piece, and all others after it
Is dedicated to you.
