Portal to Elysium

– For Adam –

by Thea Washington, October 8, 2010

Copyright Lee Cherry

Amazing face, we celebrate
The wonders you extol–
The depth, the grace, the love within,
The beauty of your soul

The words you write, the songs you sing,
That twinkle in your eyes,
The hopefulness you share with us–
They come as no surprise

And when you grace us with your smile
The Light rejoices, too
That love so pure exists on Earth
It shines on us through you

The dreams that live within us are
The dreams your soul can see
And you remind us every day
Of dreams we all could be

Elysian man, our gratitude
Is more than we can say,
You share your heart, we see our souls
Through your amazing face

    I wish I could write as beautiful as Juneau and Xena, and epecially Thea. What a beautiful poem, made my day. English not being my native language, I sometimes have trouble expressing how I feel, especially about Adam, but you do it for me so eloquently. Thank you
