    This poem was written to show my appreciation and undying devotion to woman I cannot even begin to describe.

    She has brightened my everyday since we have met and my respect and awe for her cannot be expressed words.

    She has a heart and soul that is unrivaled. She is the mirror to my soul yet I humble myself before her and these are the things I wish to express with the following poem. Though it cannot sum up the depth of my feelings.

    I'm not much of a poet I think and really follow no standards so please critique away. So far it is untitled.
    Goddess of the Sea
    by Will Frye

    What is this before me?
    For I can hardly see
    A radiance not unlike the sun which burns the eyes

    A beautiful angel from heaven?
    How far you must have fallen
    Your skin glistens like diamonds and your eyes like the depths of the sea

    I can barely look upon your face, my divine goddess
    For I am humbled by your very presence
    I fall and tremble with humility before you

    What brings you to the depths of this cold sea, my queen?
    Such a lonely place, forgotten by the heavens above
    My prison of despair and icey solitude

    You have come to shelter me, that I can see
    But what have I done to deserve such an honor
    That you would come and comfort me so?

    I am but a lowly minnow in this cold ocean
    Yet you have come from afar and enveloped my heart in the warmth of a thousand fires
    I have no words to describe this joy that renders me speechless

    You have touched my heart and released me from my anguish
    How your heart is without bounds, I cannot understand?
    You have shielded me with a love and kindness that not a thousand spears can penetrate

    Yet, what can I offer in return my queen?
    I am but your humble servant
    I can only offer you my heart, body and soul until the day time ceases

    Those I promise to you my dear....until the day time ceases.

    Damn good poem man! You say you are not a poet but your expression of emotion and gratitude for her is what we poets are all about. Keep up the good work. We will be watching for you.
