So here’s my first real attempt for a sonnet.
So is your beam like sunlight to my day
Which glimmers in the gloom of starless nights;
As still my boat from its unsteady sway,
Your words bring peace to my tumultuous flights.
So do I search for you in all my thoughts
And find you there so oft to my surprise;
Without you, all my days will be for naught
Like a child without her blanket thus she cries.
And so I pray you, please don’t leave my side,
For I shall not forsake you, joy or strife;
My love for you never will I hide
And I will treasure you for all my life.
So long as you are here, I am at peace
And every woe turns to unbounded bliss.
