Written for my wife. I cut each stanza out and presented it to her as five individual small poems that then could be read together to make a full poem. Enjoy!

i.                     Touch

Each day, I turn a new leaf over
In my diary, the pages lighten
A heaviness, lifted with your approach.

ii.                   Sight

As you draw near, I hold
My breath, fluttering like butterfly wings
A natural wonder, painted before me.

iii.                  Taste

A piquant kiss, stolen from afar
Sweetened dew drops resting
On lips divine, I am enticed

iv.                 Hearing

I will whisper, all of sweet nothing
In your absence, I await the blossom
Of you each morn, with bated breath I yearn.

v.                   Smell

An aromatic warmth, lingering
Scents of you, adorn my senses
With love, I inhale to breathe for you.

    Ooooo, make a chorus and this would be a beautiful accoustic guitar solo song :). Your wife would love to be serenaded, have someone teach you, you could do it!

    only you think your voice is horrible, look at some of the singers in history, and some of the songs I hear my son listening to, well, I think I’ve heard those sounds coming from caves after the winter thaw and spring has arrived….lol. Take a look at Leonard Cohen. He didn’t sing his songs.


Don't be shy, write a lil' somethin' somethin' ... I won't bite (today)!
