I would like to share my sonnet with you:
A Sonnet of Love
Her presence radiates my soul
Like I am being swept to the heavens;
Flying higher and higher into her heart,
She has captured my complete attention.
If the Stars is Stars and God, God
The reason for the divide being you
Then by you, Stars and God is equal
For your heart links the stars in the sky
With a slight distraction
And her soul glances over my way.
As her eyes meet mine we feel an attraction;
Seeing beauty in God’s touch
For too long my heart has been deprived
Until now, my angel has finally arrived
