When I look at you,
I can’t help but remember the first time I saw you.
When you looked at me,
I felt a tingle overtake my body.
I felt a warming to your boyish grin, walking away from you,
wishing that I had said more.
As time past by, I got to know you better.
I knew that there would be magic between us.
When I close my eyes I see your face,
and calmness takes over my body.
What I feel inside scares me to death.
My heart has never stirred like this before. So many times I wanted to ask you if you have ever been adored,
given a woman’s heart and soul,
and unconditional love.
But I didn’t.
My feelings for you are sacred.
It’s your mind and compassion that has captivated my heart,
not your physical being.
I want to be the one that gives you true happiness.
I want to spin your world, showing you that life is so precious,
worth living every moment of it in the present.
I truly believe that we have to live for today, because tomorrow may never come.
My love for you has no boundaries.
It has no middle or end just beginnings
for my feelings for you grow stronger and stronger every day.
Despite when we are apart there is a connection between us that is unmistaken.
I'm on fire by the sound of your voice
I ignite from your gentle touch.
Just when the yearning and the anticipation of being with you is too hard to bear your here, you olive eyes half open and starry.
Your unique scent sets my heart on fire and when your fingers glide down my cheek I feel a warmness travel through my body that words can't construe.
Its a desire I've come to believe is to be shared between just us two.
The passion that flows between us is rare and one that will never die.
The day I found you I realized dreams do come true.
And I thank the Lord every day for having you be a part of my life.
