By Lamont A. Turner
My darling Stephanie, you were so young And possessed with a grace unmatched in all The poet’s lore and songs of love once sung By kind Euterpe who would enthrall The lost and lonely in unending nights Of tempestuous, impassioned delights. I belonged to you from the moment you Kissed my cheek, awakening feelings born In childhood dreams of sweet romance made true By lips that mended a soul stained and worn From a lifetime of waiting for release From torment of sorrow without surcease I was yours before in your cradle you did lie And I will be yours until the day you die.
