On One Knee

by markfahmy


You look at me,
with eyes full of light
Like a hundred windows to your soul
opening so bright.

You smile, and I,
struck with such unparalleled beauty,
cannot but smile at your pretty face
as the sun behind us fades.

Our hands meet in eternal love;
A kind of love so foreign to me,
and yet it feels like home,
as I get down on one knee..

  1. You have captured love beautifully, retaining its’ mystery – by the union of the unknown with the known. Hands meet (not hearts meet) conveys your meeting a person you would never leave. Congrats!!
