My billet-doux in a flagon : A Sonnet to My Paramour

My dearest paramour, my confidence in thy veracity is indubitable,
As thou doth traverse the Indian territories,
I implore that thy sojourn doth engender delight within thee,
Though our communion hath been obstructed by the bucolic telecommunication infrastructure.
I solicit that all is well and thou art replete,
For this a.m., I dispatched a billet-doux,
In a flagon equipped with GPS guidance,
Upon the currents, it doth flow to reach thee with celerity.
Upon the banks of Ganges in Varanasi,
I anticipate to encounter thee on the morrow's aurora,
With fervent heart and optimistic eyes, I shall anticipate,
For thy return, my love, my fate.
Though the remoteness may seem intimidating, my amorousness for thee,
Shall ever burn, a perennial melodic concordance.

The orator eagerly awaits their paramour's reappearance and professes that their passion shall persist undiminished despite any remoteness that may appear intimidating.
