Something I wrote back in 2011.

I see him now with different eyes,

I think he’s truly one of a kind.

I see him resting so fast asleep,

My admirations are far too deep.

Nothing else matters when he’s in pain,

My hurt becomes simply in vain.

I love him, yes, I really do,

My heart is shouting: ‘This statement’s true!’

And when he smiles I can see light,

He’s summer day and summer night.

I see him now and he’s for me,

With him I found who I could be.

Without his warmth, I feel this hole,

That eats my heart and kills my soul.

And when his lips come join with mine, our skins begin to intertwine.

I cannot bear to watch him leave,

I cannot bear his heart deceive.

His arms, his eyes—make my head spin, and joy is born from deep within.

I see him now, I see him all,

What happens now that I’m in love?

A very romantic poem, jaylisbeth. Full of passion, but also that sense of worry that accompanies an deep relationship. A very enjoyable read!

I thought for sure that you were talking about me...! LOL, JK! No, I thought you were talking about your child, until the very end! I love this wonderful tribute to a man that must be pretty special for you to love him so! He's a pretty lucky soul!

Haha! Thank you very much, Spy. I wrote this a year into our relationship, one of my first poems for him.
