Subj: Contentment

Since the day I met you I have found
This feeling that abides within.
A constant that inhabits my heart
A knowing that lingers
A sense that has been.

When I awake it rises with me like the sun.
When I lie down it embraces me like a blanket of warmth.
When I am emotionally entangled, it centers my core.
When I am soaring above the clouds, it is my wind.
A constant, a knowing,
I reside upon this hearth.

So you ask, ?My love, what can this be?...
?What is this knowing that has so captured thee??
Indeed, my response would be to you alone.
None other would hear these words that I have now sown?

Gratification of perfected contentment would be my simple reply.
It is a peace that surpasses the security of a fortress,
a knowing that your heart is true to me alone,
a glance at us in the distance that tells me our love shall overcome.

This is our destiny, our belonging, our fulfillment is to be One.
For I know that you love me, and that our love is true.
That no matter the chaos, the excitement, or the fears
I know you love me as deeply as I love you.

That knowing grounds me and stabilizes the forces within
so that the winds of change, of demands, of the external climate are
quieted and all I
hear whispering gently, yet ever so softly is the knowing, the comfort
that you will
always be near?

This, my love, is what I know.


Penned by my hand on the 11th of Miraman, in the year 608 AF.
