The Essence of You

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


However hectic my day,

whatever life dictates,

each time I blink,

each time I think,

your sweet face

invades my thoughts

with the sweetness

of honeysuckle,

drifting on a shallow summer breeze,

infusing my mind

with the essence of you.

I feel your touch,

your breath against me,

and your gentle smile

awakens me

to you loving heart.

And I am transported,

adrift a cloud of warmth,

radiating over time and distance,

striking my soul,

like a pebble

in the pool of my life,

rings expanding

into the darkest recesses of me,

imbuing my life.

Here or there,

you shall never be far.
