V Kali asked us to choose one of three songs and use the title of that song as the first line of the poem we were asked to write. I chose You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker. I wrote the following poem for Denise.
You are so beautiful.
Your beauty captured me.
Tied my hands around your waist.
Bound my heart with so much haste
That I could only see your beautiful face.
And that is all I wanted to see
In front of me,
From now until always.
And then you teased,
And laughed, and sang your song
Before my ship sailed away,
And I was gone.
I longed for you
And me to be together.
I was bold
That we’d grow old
You are so beautiful to me.
