More revisions on Sonnet #5


You dominate my every moment's thought 
Caress the essence of my many dreams. 
Empowerment of strength that truly seems 
Forged from an alloy life and love has wrought. 

Each day's awakening is savored through
I disregard all else in life awhile. 
to favor, rest, with simple lovers’ smile 
Embracing ecstasy secure in you. 

I meet you in the hours from purest past 
In memories and dreams of future time 
But fear and skepticism within my mind
Holds knowledge even strength of steel won’t last 

Yet dreams in heart will never cease to glow 
from fiery hopes I'll never see you go.
