Love Poem: The Portrait

The Portrait

The brush dances across the canvas
I must create a image in a true goddess like status
A stunning portrait of the one I love 
Above her will be a flock of doves
Finishing the face those beautiful brown eyes seem to stare back
That vision enlightens me to keep me on track 
The vibrant colours reflect back on me in the noon day sun
Her image seems to come to life second to none
My final strokes I am sure I see a twinkle in her eyes 
Overcome with joy I start to cry
The painting will hang on my bedroom wall it has found its place
I will wake up every morning with a smile on my face
