The Most Beautiful Scent

The most beautiful scent I can imagine is you
L'odeur la plus belle que je peux imaginer vous est.

I breathe the scent of your body 
Inhale, the scent excites my senses
Exhale, in anticipation of my next breath

I breathe the scent of your body
Your scent is born of passion
Its purpose is to ignite

The bouquet is unmistakably yours
I recognize this scent anywhere
Blindfolded in a crowded room

It is a scent that only I detect
It is a scent that drives me
It is you. It is beautiful

And long after you have left 
I breathe your lingering scent on my body
I breathe your lingering scent on my pillow
I breathe your lingering scent on my lips

~Rick Berry
