Elixir of Love

Elixir of Love 


O Valentine, you are an everlasting fountain of joy
Your love flows with eternal grace and abiding faith
Your love is pure in its richness
And humble in its expectations

Your love is divine in forgiving and inspiring in its aspirations
Your love is swift in its cerebration
Hence the need for endless celebration
When others less inspired stand in woeful vacillation

Your love descends with the courage of an eagle and the smile of Venus
To overwhelm with mollifying intensity
You surround your benefactors with love so genuine
You lift hopes anew and bolster fiery ambitions for excellence

Your love, indeed, dazzles with radiance
Your love endures beyond its secular and mundane realm
And soars into a metaphysical plane
Secured in its entirety to last forever

Beyond the dawn of time
Your love becomes sacred
An elixir with the capability
To cure its benefactors of ev’ry affliction

O thou Valentine, your love is faithful
Cure me of my affliction
Rekindle my hopes
Guide my path in a life so sweet, yet acerbious

Valentine, your love is captivating
Yet arduous, scintillating yet dolorously eerie
Blissful yet painful
O Valentine, guide my path to eternal and everlasting Glory

For your love is an elixir
With the power to provide
To cure, heal, conquer, and overpower.
