One Kind of Love : Collins Sestet

You reside in me forever,
your memories leave me never,
happiness I wish to give,
for the lifetime we have to live
this love is one of its kind,
very hard to define.

My gestures of devotion,
stir inside you a sea of commotion,
how can I calm your turmoil,
let me wrap you in my protective coil,
this love is one of its kind, 
very hard to define.

You are my glowing pearl,
around you my emotions swirl,
I wish to epitomize unconditional love,
resonating the earth and heaven above,
this love is one of its kind, 
very hard to define.



The Collins Sestet has : (1) rhyming couplets, that create a (2) sestet, but the last line of each stanza also repeats a line, phrase or word to link it with the next stanza.

  13. to truly try to define love would be very hard...as hard as figuring it out...letting go...and binding...and choosing which we do....
