291 This is Love [19 March 2000]

Do you think of me,
Alone in your room,
In the silence of your solitude?
Or am I
The only one with that strange phenomena?
It seems as if no matter where you are,
Some part of you resides
In the back of my mind
Like a good memory.
Never going away,
Never fading
Though I would never want it to
Disappear from my mind.
You are the essence
Of my very life’s blood.
The very reason I exist.
There is something about you,
Something about your smile,
That I can never erase from
My mind’s eye
I love the way
You look at me.
Those amazing eyes
That are so deep
I wish to drown myself in them,
To dive into their depths,
And never surface again.
I love the way
Your arms hold me close.
Their strength
The way it feels
As if you never want to let me go.
In your presence
That is where I wish to stay.
Close enough
To feel your every breath,
To hear your heart pound.
I wish to reside
Within your embrace
Until my last sunset turns to darkness.
Can I? Please?
I love your laughter,
Your tears,
The way it echoes out,
And touches my soul.
The booming sound of your voice
When in excess of emotion,
Be it rage or otherwise.
I love your obsession
With the little things in life.
Your need to worry
About things that need fixing.
Sometimes I wonder
How it is I came to love you.
I’ve known you
As a friend for a while,
Yet only recently
Has my heart taken to you.
My soul is free of its bonds
To soar with uninhibitied emotion.
You have caused all my fear
To disipate with the clouds.
I no longer worry about
Others turning their backs on me
Because you are always there.
Sometimes it seems
Like I’ve known you forever.
And still, sometimes,
It seems like an eternity
Before you came.
Is this love?
When I feel
Like the wind
When near you
Soaring, free.
Like I can fly without wings
When you look at me.
Yes, this is love.
How can it be
Anything else?
