Discovering Ambrosia

hourglasses sigh

Each and every day that passes,

I come to know you more and more.

I settle in your soft caresses

And feel a bliss I never felt before. 


The ever turning sun and moon

Hum soft lullabies of fading time,

And with each passing of the noon,

I find in you joy more sublime.


And in any passing moment I

Might think I know you, then I find

You, oh you, with stranger's eyes

again surprise and shock me 

With your capability

To utterly enthrall me

With the simplest of gestures.


Yet again, here, I

Underestimate your sincere

Ineffable ambrosia, 

An intoxicating gentility.

Oh to think I know you and be wrong.

To underestimate the deep well of your bottomless heart...

I would curse myself for ever

Were it not for the joy of discovery.
