I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

My Greatest Victory

I knew that the day you said yes
Was my greatest victory
My greatest legacy
Of my life
When you said yes
That you would take my hand
And would walk with me forever
That you would enter forever
As my wife
From that moment I'd remember
Every tear of sadness
As something to laugh at
As something that would pass
They were a moment in a December
Versus a lifetime of days
For I had eternity
With love that would abide
With a fire that would not die
With a heart ablaze
With love
For you
Side by side we would face
All our days
All our nights
As one
Never to sever
This bond
