L.O.V.E.

Please do not ever leave me, don't you dare
Gaze down with your onyx eyes and find me
Love is a star that I look to and stare

L is for all the laughter that we share
Like the sweetness of honey mixed with tea
Please do not ever leave me, don't you dare

O is for the openness in this air
Even when invisible we can see
Love is a star that I look to and stare

V is for the violets that show you care
Scattered around my feet, fills me with glee
Please do not ever leave me, don't you dare

E is for every day you are there
Two is better than one don't you agree?
Love is a star that I look to and stare

You ask where my love resides, I say where
It lives in my heart where 'Us' just might be
Please do not ever leave me, don't you dare
Love is a star that I look to and stare


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this villanelle after I remembered the song L.O.V.E. that played during this Chanel commercial. This was my third try at a villanelle, and I think it came out pretty well. I want girls and boys to remember their special someone when they read this.
