Whisper


I whisper 'love, stay with me always'
You smile, and hold me close to you
Let love light all our days

The sun and sky beam their rays
Time is not borrowed or held in lieu
I whisper 'love, stay with me always'

We wrote the words of a million plays
Travelling on paths, old and new
Let love light all our days

I see the stars shine from your gaze
We are rich, though our possessions few
I whisper 'love, stay with me always'

Through cornfields we walk in summers haze
Regrets, perhaps, but these days we will not rue
Let love light all our days

We've seen sunsets, as our children grew
And we have no need of vows to renew
I whisper 'love, stay with me always'
Let love light all our days

A villanelle? I adore the two refrain lines very much. Sweet and gentle. A beautiful love poem indeed. :)
