Common Illuminator

I love you
Nothing can take your place
Or erase
The warmth of your embrace
You rule from shore to shore
Until time shall cease

In summer
You warm the sand with a kiss
Of brilliance
And turn up the heat
On waters deep

In winter
On snow capped mountains
You melt the peeks
When hearts grow cold
From earthy cares
Your steadfast rays are there
For all to share

No matter where
Until I am no more
You’re my light
From the heights
Of heaven, shine bright
My joy
My delight

Your wealth unmeasured
A treasure I cherish
I stand watch for you
At daybreak
When nights are long
After my storm
I wait for you
To bring calm and sight

You penetrate my outer shell
Reach deep
To warm, to right
The city of my soul
When sorrow finds
A hiding place

You are the star
That lights my day
You are
Until life shall end
My peace, my friend

Yet, not mine alone

Absolutely Lovely! Enjoyed! Well Done!

Wonderful tribute to the not-so-common Common Iluminator of our lives. Minor point: you might want to check the spelling in your title. If I am not wrong, I think there should be a second 'l' in it. I hope I AM wrong.

Great poem. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

"the city of my soul" - awesome imagery. This is lovely, beautiful. Good job!

I love the gentle reassurance of this peace, though I think you need to take a peek at how you've spelled "peak."

Simply beautiful. Well done.
