Love’s Metaphor Revisited

Not even the angels above
Could make a better match
So please be with me
And I will make you happy
Such is the depth and breadth
Of my lasting love
Intense and profound
Broader than the horizon
And the measure of an ocean deep
Enduring till that watery abyss
Dries to sun baked desert
And its powdery form runs
Through your fingers
And loves metaphor is blown away
Like smoke on the wind

As Broad As It's Long

A romantic love poem which could alternatively be titled The Mystery of the Missing Metaphor. It should delight romantics and educators (awful Americanism for teachers, lecturers and other educationalists) in equal measure.
