ode to the one


*I wrote this about a year or so ago…I felt like sharing. Enjoy*

i want…
someone who is my shelter and i his…
someone who will keep me on his mind always
i don’t have to remind him…he thinks of me 1st, him 2nd
when he sees his future…
it is me that is a constant vision replayed
to be cherished beyond all life’s physical and material bounties…
cuz having me is like striking it rich
to him, i’m like…
a hand making gingerly caresses on his face
cuz his heart hurts
or cuz mine beams with love
a kiss on the neck, when he leasts expects it
a hand on his back in the middle of the night
a reminder that i’m his backbone
warm softness in the winter
a smile to make him glow inside
a laugh that makes his being shiver with delight
cuz hearing me laugh is like Christmas morning
and when i sing to him…
its like a beacon of light…showing him home
for us…
to sit in a room without words and yet soul speak
shoot glances of eye smiles and thought kisses
be kindred and tied
share heartbeats and sighs
push others out of a room
cuz our love is deafening
hearing them but not listening
our yearnings loudly unspoken
loyalty easy as pie
each other’s flavors are all we crave
stuffed to the gills with good lovin’
we will…
assist in dreams manifested
bless our spirits
enrich one another
celebrate all that we are
everyday
always
