Whole Heart

A step outside
And the cold air swallows me
My face feels prickles in the frigid air
My lungs tighten and each breath it strained
Goosebumps arise on my neck and through my clothing
I shiver slightly yet hold my original pose
An icy breeze rolls by whistling through my hair
I close my eyes and feel the air kiss my rosy cheeks
I curl and uncurl my stiff fingers
Then clench my fists and cross my arms tightly
I wait so solemnly and cold
He whispers in my ear the warm air tickling me
His arms slide around me and pull me toward him
Hot fiery moist air showers my cold neck
There we stand together as it should be
Sturdy as one being through it all
And as my breathing slows knowing he is here
I lean into him 
In every way can feel the love flowing between us
As the cold bites the tip of my nose
He slowly turns me around
Kisses my chapped lips so softly
He breathes 'I love you' with his whole heart
For once the world is peaceful and serene
Waiting, waiting, waiting...
As we turn together toward the warmth of the house
I whisper oh so softly
'My heart is ever at your service...'
And we walk inside as one

Note:  William Shakespeare, was a true genius, his quote 'My heart is ever at your service' is said to be one 
of the best love quotes of all time, he knew how to say things the way they were.  We should all learn from
