Description: ever hear the phrase "kill 'em with kindness"? this for the one who killed me. i will never be able to write the praise he deserves; i'm nowhere near talented enough.
my saviour -------------------------------------------
your voice is of the sweetest tone
you must be heaven-sent
you never speak in anger, love,
your kindness doth never relent
your face is more beauteous by far
than that of any mere earth creature
you radiate the warmest glow
from your every physical feature
you must be an object of adoration
to all those whom you know
if ever a more excellent being existed
his presence he never did show
your reverence for all things living
inspires in me the notion
that you're an angel from above
i submit to you my devotion
your firm embrace protects me
keeps me safe from earthly perils
the truth you offer so unbiased
strenthens my faith in you, the hearald
i'm humbled in your presence, dear
i'll never cry again i'm sure
my angel of death, come to take me home
for eternity's tenure
Your poem makes ME feel safe. ^_^ Although I suppose it shouldn't, telling from the last two lines in "angel of death" and "eternity."
I'm not entirely should who the subject of this poem is because of those last two lines, but the sort of flowery language makes it obvious that it's to someone very important to the narrator. (Also the title. Duh.)
<I>"than that of any mere earth creature"</I>
This line doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the poem; it sounds too long and clustered. If you cut out a few syllables to have it match with the previous line, I think it would sound a bit better.
Anyway, in short, this poem made me sort of happy to read because it pays such affective homage to someone. Thanks for sharing with us!
