Seraphim

alarming loft via angel’s breath

no more than a word spent to send me there

her smile stealth, though not meant as such

my heart exhumed for another chance

what sheer delight to discover thus

a shared desire, but could it be

that life-long err still deserve her love

I’ll question not, pray it come to pass

exquisite grace from thee I watch

your kindness flows for all to see

and when the reaper, my life arrest

may I cease by your side, most humbly

    What an amazing picture these words paint in my mind! They are full of ‘exquisite grace’, just like the Seraphim they describe.

    Al, you have brought me to tears today, what a soul filled stanza, that evokes the
    essence of true love you and Jennifer share.

    That is absolutely beautiful, Al. Eric used to write poetry for me and I know how special it made me feel to see his words expressed in such a way. You painted such a touching portrait of Jen; you both are very lucky to have each other.

    • Al Boudreau says:

      Thank you Karen. Jennifer is truly the kind of woman who comes along but once in a lifetime. Words fail to do her justice, but I’ll continue to try. Thanks so much for your warm response.
