I love when we are close.
Touch is so necessary at times,
The world’s needs pressing in on us until it seems there’s no escape.
I need your arms,
The feel of your skin on mine to ground me.
I need your lips,
The way you brush them over my forehead,
The way you love so completely,
not just with your body but with your soul as well.
The comfort of having you near is more than I can ever explain.
I’m not sure when I knew you were mine.
Sometimes I think it was that careful dance around each other that we had at first.
When I dared you to kiss me,
You did and I’ll never forget it.
I feel it every time our lips meet,
The way I can get so lost in you.
It seems I’ve always known you were my future.
Life has a way of dragging us down,
But the constant I have is you.
You, my love,
You are my world.
