When I look at you


When I look at you
You are the light of my life
You brighten my day

When I speak to you
You listen to me love
You have trust in me

When I dare to touch
You smile and encourage me
My heart then beats fast

When I yearn for you
I know you will wait for me
No matter how long

When I hold you close
We melt together to be
United in love

  10. I love the structure of this - each tercet beginning with the word 'when' ... a word that speaks, I think, to the reality of love: the waiting and the coming together. Another beautifully written piece, Robin.
