My sherry, my devine



My sherry, my devine
My first taste of sweet red wine
My path paved in notes; elopes
My simplest of eager hopes
My sail in the meager cold
My heart growing old in youth bold
My angel wing surplus to none
My perfect proof in equals done
My stillness in the brightest void
My place for feelings deep inside
My silent prayer too long for above
My turtle dove, you are the one, my love

My sherry, my devine
My first taste of sweet red wine
