Through the iron gates of great impossibility
Mirrored in the face of adversity
Underlined with intense streams of tears innumerable
With all hope descended at rock bottom
Fear courting as closest companion…
There shone a light
Through the eyes of a dove
Engulfing with intensity
Revitalizing with effect
I was suddenly alive
Just like that!
It has only gotten better by the day
And the breeze in the air tells me we will be just fine
I did not know how to spell Grace
Nor comprehend how to paint Favor
I had lost faith in dreams
Until you walked into my life
And smiled at me through the eyes of a dove
And before my very eyes brought the touch of heaven right into our world
Sweet scent of Glory
You have changed my life
And forever altered its course in ways beyond words
I watched you glide down the aisle
With such incredible gail
You were like a messenger sent of the divine
Days, moments, weeks, months and years scrolled past my eyes
Memories gone by of a gruelling race that had at times felt destined for a dead end
In the long and winding of it you and I know best
I couldn’t believe it, that there was a chance after all our dream was coming to being
Especially through the eyes of the dove
Truly the best had been saved for last
I did not see it come until the very last moment
Reminiscent of the ancient six stone jars
So it’s true there is such a place where best is saved for last
It was marvelous to behold, so beautiful to comprehend
I crossed my fingers and waited patiently for you to get to me
Not sure if I was caught up in yet another mirage
Or the reality of a grand dream coming true
You did not disappoint
This was as real as real could get
The smile on your face swept all unbelief away in an instant
The look in your eyes held my spirit in the embrace of a tender anchor…
The eyes of a dove
With the Christmas lights dancing merrily right behind us
Now that we have made it yet through another full circle
I just want you to know…
Thought I should let you know
That I love you more than love could tell
You are the reason I know I have a date with destiny
That Heaven is watching over us
You are a dream come true
In a love song
That will fade away not
Till the end of time
I Love You!

We have something in common in that my husband and I celebrate our anniversary in December too – it will be 46 years on the 30th.

Many thanks for the visit and kind compliments.. 46?!..Congratulations. When I grow up I want to be just like you! Merry Christmas and a most fulfilling New Year. Best Regards
Thank you for the well wishes on our upcoming anniversary (I know 46 sounds like so long but still wonder where all the years have gone).
Wishing you much happiness this Christmas and much success in the New Year 2013.
If love can overpower those e first 5 lines, it is indeed very powerful.
Agreed Carl. Glad you could make it today. Thanks and best wishes for the season.
I agree with Carl.
Dove rhymes with Love. And the line “through the eyes of a dove” in your poem also reminds me of the song “Through the Eyes of Love” from the movie “Ice Castles”.
Thank you and happy new year to you!
This is heart-warming and beautiful.
I’m glad you enjoyed it. See you around and thanks for all.
