To the Goddess of Love
Age Group: Adult
To the Goddess of love
I make my somber serenade
Singing songs of warmth and comfort
Across her bosom I lay
Strong and sound of mind
Gracious are her virtues many
Her soul is good and kind
Up and far away
To my Golden Goddess I pray
Unto your glowing likeness
Her love is like the summer
She is a breasted holy gift
And a giving lover
Oh my! How I'd see you once again
Your oval round face
Your lover's embrace
Through your words that were spoken
I feel that deep within me awoken
A youth lost long to slumber
His eyes are wide with passions anew
Wide awake with long lost wonder
And as he comes awake
Into this world of pain
He sees your soft-lit face
Softly glowing and all knowing
Compassionate to the very most
A member of the holy host
Silver are her gossamer wings
Of long lost love she sweetly sings
She is the living loving icon
That I've come to nightly lean on
She leads me on and fills me up
I am sustained by such a bounteous cup
In her amber nut-brown eyes
I lived whole lives, and I died
To be revived, made whole again
By the touch of cream-white skin
Her voice it rings with bell-like laughter
I could not begin to forget her after
Hearing such a happy sound
To her embracing bosom bound
Naught but death can take me away
This feeling in my soul she hath made
But even then I dare to say
I'll fly across the sky above
Dancing amongst the stars in love
Sustained forever by her power
Feeling fuller every hour
Until eternity takes my soul
She'll love and soothe my ever woe
Until the end and yet beyond
Not even death can break this bond
To the Golden Goddess of love
Won't you return to me?
We could do, so much us two
Let love commence and then ensue
all manner of things we could pursue
For if your power as one be great
Imagine what the strength of two would make
We'd soar as hawks and touch the sky
We'd see the beauty of life
And never again ask "Why?"
For with love comes reason
And knowledge you can use
I could be your lover
You could be my muse
We'd travel distant lands together
Wide eyed with child-like wonder
For it's who you're with in life,
Not the weather,
Not the daily beating drum
Nor the reddest, richest rum,
That makes the journey worth the while
And just remember
As you go on without me
The times we shared,
The memories made
The moment I first touched your face
The warmth of our nightly embrace
These are things you can't just erase
This is my ode to you
All this is heartfelt and true
And though this may feel like the end
Know that I will always love you,
My dearest friend.
Author's Notes: I was reading this one over and I realized that it might be a little confusing as to whether I was writing to the actual Goddess, or praising the goddess-like virtues of a woman. It is both actually. At the beginning to the middle it is an ode to the Goddess of Love herself, and from "In her amber nut-brown eyes..." to the end it is a past lover I am addressing. But I think it is pertinent to note here that perhaps there's less distinction between the two, as I believe that all are manifestations of the Great Spirit, so in praising the mortal woman, I feel I am worshiping the Goddess all the while. Either way I hope ya'll like it :)
