The Call

For the one I love, Ionia.

A gentle ring
The dulcet tone
Of a bell resounds
Inside my head

My heart does stutter
And skips a beat
As across the room
Our eyes do meet

A faltered breath
A sharp intake
Transcendence before me,
Make no mistake

A vision of beauty
Of heavenly descent
Perfection on earth
A miraculous event

The wonder, the joy
Of being yours
Through every impediment
Our love endures

And again I hear
That ringing inside
Leading me back
A perpetual guide

The bell, a call
To the altar of love
For you are always
My eternal love
