I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
The laughter in your voice,
the look in your eyes,
the smile on your face,
lets me know you love me.
The way you hold me in your arms,
your tender kisses,
the little things you say,
tells me I am safe.
The moments we share,
the surprises you give,
the joy from your heart,
lets me know you want us to be together.
The love I feel for you,
the happiness in my heart,
the proudness I feel for you,
lets me know I am where I want to be.
