Love Poem: April Romance

April Romance

My heart returns to you like spring
Awakening with April rain
As pale petals tenderly cling
To promises of daylight's gain

I turn to you like seasons do
Dewy and fresh from winter's depth
Seeding our love in rainbow hues
Green life misting our mingled breath

Your eyes, once shy, now warmly bloom
Vast meadows of poppy sweet red
Our future in rosy perfume
Although nearly two decades wed

Once auburn, more silver does grow
Yet gleaming still in color's call
A blossom kept beneath the snow
You are my spring, summer and fall
