Come night, come love

You, the silent mystery
hidden from the eye

my love

winds dance in cloaks of night
as shadows flee for the morning

and when words are whispered
runes carved
secrets revealed

You, the silent mystery
sing, with the earth

my love

midnight torches light
invisible, irrestistable paths

You, the silent mystery
sing, with the earth

like my heart

There is so much tenderness and longing in your words, beautiful words of the heart. I love the phrase 'silent mystery.'
This poem evokes imagery which enlivens the senses. Well done.

A very emotional peice. The wording is spot on, and the mood is a suttle but desirable depth. Thanks for sharing.
