Speak To Me (Sonnet)

Speak to me, whisper the tenderest of words

My ears and heart art open to thy love

There is nothing more that needest be heard

This I do vow before God up above

 

My love, dearest love, thou art more precious than gold

Thy love and life cherished above my own

This I do promise from thy youth to age old

I’ll strive my whole life to have shown

 

In the stars it was written before time began

Two souls were destined to be one

Our walk through eternity wouldst be hand-in-hand

From dawn until life’s setting sun

 

I promise to thee my undying love, with God as my witness on high

Sweet and as pure as the snow white dove, committed to thee ‘til I die

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

 

I’ve Tripped And Fallen

I’ve tripped and fallen,

Arose battered, cut and bruised

Yet I’m undeterred.

Life is not always painless

Nor always terribly kind.

Instinct says to run,

To hide from that which injures

Becoming recluse.

I refuse to run or to hide,

Cowering in human fear;

Preferring instead

To face my future head on

Whatever may come.
