Waking moments

Every waking moment

I think of the bright glimmer in your eyes

The softness and warmth of your skin

Each gentle curve of your body

The grace of your movements

That gentle lift of your lips when you smile

The way your hair swirls when your head tilts back

How music rings in the air when you laugh

How my  heart flutters when you speak

The sweet perfume when you enter a room

How the air eases in your loveliness

The way others warm to your thoughtfulness

The way I am undone at a glimpse of you

How my heart beats when I think of you

Before I sleep,

I grin. For when

I dream, these thoughts

come once again.
