One and only

by Alec Sharp

One and only you are to me
Like paired swans twas meant to be
Deepest brown eyes into i fell
Longest dark hair spun from the night
Creamy pure skin silk to touch
Lips to excite and yearn to kiss
Wanted by many but promised to me.
Under the surface tales to tell
Passion and kindness foremost of the swell
An ocean of strength to draw upon
When waves are rough and vision obscure
Heart of pure gold you must have for sure.
You should have left many a time
Confusion and insecurity in this young mans mind
Persistence paid off and now he is yours
Forever and ever till the sun cease to rise.
