Flame of Light..........Italian Sonnet

I gaze upon the candle's flame tonight,
and watch it dance in amber flicker flow,
oh flame of light, my wish I think you know
to see my love beyond the veil of sight.
In age-old whispers mystic's words incite,
with magic set my lover's heart a glow,
upon the winds a gentle breath shall go
and say the words of love to her tonight.
I close my eyes and see her standing there
in beauty's smile I start to feel her kiss
we sit and talk of love without a care
as senses reel in passion's sweet abyss
until the night shall sing its last refrains
and just one candle lit flicker remains.
