Child of the Heavens

Glitter of the blissful sky,

Guide me through the night.

Although you're not always there to comply,

I feel your warmth; I feel your light.

I know the children of the forest,

And I know the children of the Earth.

To them, I am no longer the tourist,

Yet I was not aware of your birth.

You seemed to arrive in the knick of time,

Almost towards my inevitable death.

Wanderer of the forgotten rhyme,

Love me until your last breath.

Angel, child, saviour in disguise,

Lead me to utter bliss and not contempt.

Don't deny me to demise,

Yet don't exactly relent.

Child of the heavens above,

Do not leave and die.

Understand that my love

Is based upon questions of why.

The questions lead to wondering

Of what there is to come.

Poet of the night with a mind wandering,

Take me back to where you're from.

To the sky or sea of black above;

Lover of the forgotten realms,

Guide me upon the wings of a dove,

And forever in your heart shall I dwell.

Firstly, if you'll forgive me this comment, because I do not intend to criticize, at all. This poem seems slave to rhyme, which perhaps cripples it from where it wants to go, yet it excels in content... I employ rhyme where I may, and I know I'm not the most adept at doing so, but to me it seemed this poem, though great, could be truly beyond words if it were released from the rhyme... as though the rhyme began a thing it could not finish, and you recognized this and ended it with 'And forever in your heart shall I dwell.' --so it seemed to me. This poem comes out well in the end, if you don't mind my boldness in saying so.

This is really beautiful. I love the ending it really seems to sum up well. Come comment on a few of my stories and maybe give me a few hints on how to have a better( existant would be nice) rhyme scheme. Again, This poem is really pretty.
