I love the memory of you
Echoing my heart in red
Light refracting through stained glass eyes
Flushing colors across whatís held


You marched through my front door carting
Carmine memories heaped and stored
Years of moonlight upon your heels
Visiting us with Godís reward


My kitchen filled with life by you
Laughing, eating pounds of noodles,
Aroma lingers in the air
As the marinara dwindles


I love the red jeweled soul in you
Like rubies dotting heavenís wall
And gems in crowns betrothed to us
To one day lay where scarred feet fall


Bodies dispersed across my floors
Spreading Godís word atop our rugs
Palm tree years and ocean blessings
Could there be any sweeter thoughts


Spaghetti nights, lipstick kisses
Travel now, like old friend wandíring
Burning embers upon my mind
For my heartís delightful pondering


My chest bears catalogs of friends
And holds them nearer at this end.

This is gorgeous!

I especially like your use of slant rhyme, and the lovely couplet at the end...oh, and your use of vivid imagery, too! I wish I could write poems like this.

Great imagery. I so much want to be part of this poem. You make this scene so warm and friendly. Great job with the topic.
