What is it About You that Makes Me

What is it about you that makes me 
Want to jump out of my skin and fly 
Like an eagle in the wind, wings
Outstretched wide as if I
Could do anything because you’ve 
Touched me deep inside?

What magic potion do you possess 
Causing such commotion so 
Deep within my veins
That all of my emotions
Seek equilibrium from the notion 
You’re a dancing angel in the rain?

For long have I been standing 
In this shadow dark and wide
Waiting for the light of day and you
To catch my eyes.  In this golden moment 
Before the sun is gone again, I’m higher than 
Eagles soaring beyond the blue, all 
Because of you my dearest friend.

    Wow...this one is edgy, and pulls the fun right into the imagery... Love comes no limits at all... LOL...i think it should at least come with a warning sign that reads... ""HOLD ON TIGHT""... Enjoyed... forever ~LINDA

    I was hoping against hope to find you back here on PoetrySoup. You are sorely missed, my friend. Here's hoping all is well with you. Licia :-)
