       A prayer for love and lovers

    I recommend reading this one aloud at a moderate pace.

    dotsSplendor of Rapturedots

    May you forever
    be wrapped
    in the splendor
    of rapture,
    in the bliss
    of happiness.

    Each day,
    I wish
    that the
    rising sun
    is lifted
    by your joy,

    hope your clouds
    bring only soft
    refreshing rain

    and pray that
    embracing love
    will mean
    gazing into the
    welcoming eyes
    of a lover.

    My deepest desire
    is that the object
    of your greatest
    affection will
    always be
    in your mirror.

      The last 6 lines, in my opinion, are the best:
    "My deepest desire
    is that the object
    of your greatest
    affection will
    always be
    in your mirror."

    Also, breaking a line each two words is abit disturbing. Sometimes acceptable, though.

      You're so right Chrys, even as we learn and grow, there is nothing to give unless we love ourselves.

    Just now I'm thinking this is a vital bit of advice. It has a calm and serene feeling to it that I like.

    Thanks for being you,

      This is such a lovely poem. How warm and gentle this prayer is and filled with such caring wonderful wishes. This poem describes what true love is really all about. The complete and total comfort and security of knowing you are loved. Knowing that you dont have to worry about being hurt. Knowing that even the clouds that bring rain are gentle and refreshing. And the ending of this is truly wonderful. One can never really know and appreciate love for all that it is and give it whole heartedly without first being able to love and respect themself. A very wise and truthful last stanza to sum up this inspirational and heartfelt poem. Excellent! Take care!

      this is a very positive, inspirational poem. i couldnt help but smile when i read it. im in a bit of a tough spot, but it still made me smile. it feels really choppy, though. it reads really fast and choppy...not smooth and flowing like a love poem. great write, though.

      Nice little anthem. I can see it on a poster, it's very inspirational.

    I do think you could tidy up a couple of spots in the middle stanza, they are a teensy bit awkward:

    "I wish each day
    the sun rises
    on your joy, " this may be a typo, but It reads a bit funny. Something like:

    "As each day's
    sun rises anew,
    may it shine joy
    upon you"

    the other bit

    "and pray that
    embracing love
    will mean
    gazing daily
    into glowing eyes
    of a lover."

    again, a tiny bit awkward. Something like:

    "and pray that
    love looks on you
    through the cherished eyes
    of a lifelong lover" or something

    Just a couple of suggestions, use 'em or lose 'em.

    I really liked your words here, I'd have it on my wall.

    Well done

    Be Happy
