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!
Each day, I turn a new leaf over
In my diary, the pages lighten
A heaviness, lifted with your approach.
As you draw near, I hold
My breath, fluttering like butterfly wings
A natural wonder, painted before me.
A piquant kiss, stolen from afar
Sweetened dew drops resting
On lips divine, I am enticed
I will whisper, all of sweet nothing
In your absence, I await the blossom
Of you each morn, with bated breath I yearn.
An aromatic warmth, lingering
Scents of you, adorn my senses
With love, I inhale to breathe for you.
