All I ever needed
Was She
To see my wildest dreams exceeded
And the demon seed impeding me unheeded
All I ever wished for
Was love enough to live for
With encouragement to give more
Than all other loves conceded

All of me
Straightforwardly
With every shred of forward speed
For every breath afforded me
Bids testament to orchard scene
The sediment of heaven sent digression to a theme
Foreseen self-evident as lesser seen impediment to me
Evidently She agrees the betterment of me
Unearthing treasure in my keep
As she searches through the settlement debris

All I ever needed
Was to feel less incomplete
And She did everything
To venture ventral stream
Make sense of feelings seminal to me

Impeccably serene
I feel to decorate a Queen
To rest my blessings at her feet
To dress with eminence her steed
Be insusceptible to greed
For all I ever really needed
Was one kiss from She
To see forever gleaned

Evergreen the tree beneath which leisured feathers preened
Bequeath embellishment of leaves
Which leap in reverence to She
Succeed in relishing the breeze
Which eases effortlessly tween us
As we set the scene for Venus to esteem us
Intravenously
Breathe as one to free a love
Dreamed ceaselessly

All I ever needed
Was She
To see my wildest dreams exceeded
And the demon seed impeding me unheeded
All I ever wished for
Was love enough to live for
With encouragement to give more
Than all other loves conceded

We dance with reckless abandon
In tandem
Two travel companions with one understanding
Candle-lit eyes locked in flaming embrace
Fingertips draped across cascading lace
Sustaining grace at unwavering pace
Through tenebrous caverns
Perennial lantern

A primeval scene
Of Venetian sweep
One ingenious scheme
No impedances seen
Bold allegiances demeaned
Open grievances screamed
Soulful feelings unscreened
Noble teachings unredeemed
Nothing predisposed or decomposed
Only budding love within enclosed

To recompose the ebb and flow of echoes of remembrance
Bring them into softer focus
Marvel their resemblance
To reverie foreseen
Daydreams in sepia
Entire encyclopaedia of souvenirs of years sincerely grieved now bid reprieve
Prelude to a deluge of renaissance themed redeem

We dare to live the dream that cares recur of running theme
Compliment the lattice work
Invent a unique colour scheme
Introducing blue and green to seamless beauty in-between
Soothing each horizon into rising to a new extreme
Thriving are the seas that reach into the skies esteemed to fly
Climbing with surprising ease
Devising means to widen beams
Our eyes agleam to see the bridal wreath in vibrant bloom
For every star we glance in passing further nurtures diamond boom

All I ever needed
Was She
To see my wildest dreams exceeded
And the demon seed impeding me unheeded
All I ever wished for
Was love enough to live for
With encouragement to give more
Than all other loves conceded

Acquiesce forever scene
And dream it
