Lady Maria, Poetry by Matthias Pantaleon

 Genre: History, Life

Lady Maria, you’re my heart in another body
The tide that keeps me afloat
My heart row toward your port that waits
My arrival with the friendliness of an abating sea

Morning rain brings sunlight with scorching heat
The wind left me a note by the window side
I am the overbearing heat that needs morning
rain for a change, this change from keynote to string chord

I’ll sing of my drifting love toward your port
‘Cause I never hold you this close – you saved me this much
Like the ship that lay at anchor
You keep me connected to my root

Lady Maria, you are the sunshine in my rainy cloud
And I love you softly
Like dew on dianthus flowers
You fill my life with fragrance

When the chips are down
You hold me up
Like flagstaff;
Keeps me hanging straight

I love you with a sweetness that drips with affection
Like morning sun on a bare skin
I love you pure and constantly like the North Star
Yes, I love you deep like the Nile

‘Cause you make my heart delight
You’re the boat that ferries happiness
Bringing quietness, peace
And plenty of soothing joy

And I love you like sunset on the plateau
Like yacht loves blue sea
I love you like this,
Because you are beautiful this way

A grateful heart
Your lungs are full of laughter
Bubbling grace
Quietness buff with joy

I love you like birds on the green hillside
Like lullaby baked with sunlight
I love you loudly
Like the sea loves her own

Yes, I love you blue, and wide like the ocean
I love you proudly
Like butterflies and sunlight
Yes, I love you green, like the flowers that bloom

I love you freely
Like the ocean that opens its heart to sister creeks
A happy confluence
I love you like the things I can not see
But feel in my heart, half sleep, half dream, to wake in your arms

I love you like the tributary that never dries
Amazon – water flows out of its mouth every second
Yes, I love you like sailing cloud and morning rain
Soft, silky pebbles to adore and adorn your love
