Tongue Tied In Wonderland

Sometimes one person is all the view you find you need for a lifetime.

Tongue Tied In Wonderland
by Michael Doyle

Pretty isn't enough for the view
For the wonderfulness of the avenue
A white wave of sheerest delight
Canopied over with flowers just right

A shining lake overtaken by geese
While lakeside sheep are adorned in fleece
Geese and swans choose each other
For a life separate from all the others

This then is the life chosen with you
Knowing that this is what I propose to do
To spend all my time soaking you in
It's a decision of our destiny then

You and I have decided to make our home
Pinched to assure this waken dream  stands alone
It is good to mean so very much to you
Yours is the only dream that will do

You told me you wish to be distinguished
Like a candle prayed over and then extinguished
Yours is the whisper of hope in my tears
The hope I long to live for in all of my years
