Blessed

It's the look that you give me when our eyes meet
That leaves nothing unspoken and my heart at your feet

It's the warmth of your touch as the day comes alive
With dreams on your breath and sleep in your eyes

That tells me I'm right where I'm supposed to be


It's the catch in your voice in a soft tender moment
I feel the same way and I know that you know it

Each day that I can love you I know that I am blessed
I could keep only this and leave all the rest

I'd never give up the love and joy you've brought to me

This poem is really lush, the wordplay is soothing and hypnotic. The subject matter reminds me of the song with the lyrics

You say it best
when you say nothing
at all.

This is a very evocative piece. I especially love "With dreams on your breath and sleep in your eyes." Nice work.

The narrator has a huge, loving heart. Simplicity at its best.
