When you are near, my gaze is only for you

The depth of your eyes comforts me with a warm and welcoming embrace

The sparkle in your eyes both speeds and yet lightens my heart

While your smile draws me close ‘til your breath envelopes me

Like the softest and yet most compelling of lovers,

When we cannot touch

I close my eyes

And find myself embracing you yet again

And I see that same smile that knows

And holds me close,

And so, I am drawn to you whether you are near or far

And consider myself the luckiest among men and gods

To have found you once again.
