I look into you, your infinite eyes
wondering what mysteries have I yet to uncover
I love you,
you whispered like a lover’s touch
it unmanned me, as your breath touches my skin
breaking down the walls I have erected easily
piece by piece, you tore down my own prison
finding me, chilled to the bone, barely living
I love you,
you said once more, warmth spreading inside me
a seed planted, of hope, of dreams, of the future
We both smiled at the silliness of it all
yet we barely moved from where we stand,
drinking in the beauty that hid inside of us
glowing, emanating, radiating from within
You reached out to me and I did the same,
we closed the gap, and we became one
our roots going deeper into the earth,
as we drank from the wellspring of our love,
growing towards the heavens, we became forever,
we became us, our oneness no longer a thought
but a reality where we thrive in each other’s light
