I forget the days when I’m with you
in your smile, the sparkle in your eyes
the world fades, and I’m wrapped up
in every word you utter, the very air you breathe
your soul calling upon mine
hands entwined, our fates crossing intricately
no boundaries, no walls,
just the warmth that spreads from your touch
that glides through this waiting body,
answering your kisses with mine own
the days melt and coalesce into oneness
and so I forget the world
as I sleep, in your arms

It’s enough that I love


It’s enough that I love
the very thought of you,
even from afar I can still feel
the heartache of longing,
penetrating deep within
knowing that it’s impossible
this love I have for you.

It’s enough that I love
those moments we have,
even if they’re just minutes,
rolling to hours,
for days even weeks are beyond us
because I know it won’t be possible
this very thing that I want the most.

It’s enough that I love
the very dream of me and you,
the one we hope we could build
you and I together
perhaps in the future
if the fate allows.

It’s enough that I love
the very essence of us
even as this distance
is keeping us apart
in this world where we are
but two souls searching
the light in each other’s eyes.
