Love Is All Around Us (Poetry From the Heart)
My Special Place
In loves contented afterglow
Through windows East I stare,
There stand the ghostly eucalypt
Leaves swaying in the air.
You softly whisper, "I love you"
Your fingers stroke my skin.
Replying with, "I love you too"
I gently cup your chin.
The magpie chirps a serenade
Within the snow white gums.
Dark clouds gather in the West
And distant thunder drums.
The land has seen effects of drought
The grass is brown and dry.
With promise of approaching rains
Trees reach towards the sky.
A sexy smile invades your mouth,
I gaze into your eyes.
My lips touch yours in soft caress,
I love your breathy sighs.
A storm bird in the bottle brush
Calls to the Summer rain.
The clouds soon gather overhead,
Blue skies turn to grey.
You pull my body close to yours,
I relax in your embrace.
Who cares about the pending storm,
I'm in my special place.
Thoughts Of You
A shooting star bright in the sky
A dew drop on a flower
A graceful eagle soaring high
A gentle Summer shower.
The taste of biscuits from a tin
The smell of fresh baked bread
The feel of silk against my skin
The pillow 'neath my head.
A sunset on a cloudy day
Its watercolor hues
A sailboat drifting on the bay
All bring me thoughts of you.
A smile from you excites me
A kiss makes my blood race
Loving you fulfills my dreams
Like rocketing through space.
My Love For You
Every day the sun shines
So does my love for you.
Sometimes a cloud may appear
Or the occasional storm may develop.
But just as the sun is ever present behind the clouds,
My love for you remains constant,
Always constant and growing stronger by the day.
When the daylight fades and night descends
My love still beams through the darkness,
Silent, but with hidden strength.
Just as the moon controls the tides,
So my love for you controls my actions.
It is always there, day or night,
Like my strong heart beating within,
And without which I would surely die.
Loving you makes me glad to be alive,
And if you keep loving me
I want to live forever,
Especially in your heart.
The Ageless Flower
I love you more with every breath,
With every minute passed.
My love grows deeper by the hour,
By days, by weeks, by months.
With each year that speeds on by,
And age creeps up so fast,
It seems that you're immune to time,
Your beauty's never lost.
I think that in some future time,
Say twenty years from now,
I'll gaze upon a face so young
It reminds me of a flower.
A flower that's just begun to bloom,
So beautiful and proud,
That stands so bright among the weeds
Like sunshine through a cloud.
