My Valentine

http://dversepoets.com/


I taste the ocean on your lips
as you devour mine.
The wind sings her song,
and runs her fingers through your hair,
but your heart belongs to me.
The waves lull you to sleep,
but you seek the fire in my eyes.
You find life in my desire,
as my heart melts in your hand.
A love note by the bed,
a single rose on the kitchen table,
knowing glances,
melted dark chocolate in a bowl,
a dance through our life.
You read me like a book,
inhaling my pages,
light and dark,
taking them in as your breath.
You carried me through sadness,
through emerald green fields,
through aquamarine waters.
Valentine's Day, every day.
Hard to remember,
that life is fragile,
only this moment promised.
Not always roses or sunshine,
not always picture perfect,
sweet and sour,
sane and insane,
but always true,
always me and you.


Dedicated to my husband, he is my love, my best friend and he is the one that makes me sane and insane.

  4. "...as my heart melts in your hand..." Those for me are 'throat-lump' words,Ayala. Just beautiful is only way I can describe your love...and lover.

    Other line I would gladly have paid for:

    "You read me like a book,
    inhaling my pages,
    light and dark,
    taking them in as your breath."

    I call this (ODE TO A HUSBAND)...simplicity at its most profound. THANK YOU! PEACE!
