Why

Why is it that every time I see you, I’m lost for words?
Why is it that every time I see you my heart rages like a trapped monster that 
wants to get out?
Why is it that every time I see you I begin to tremble and my hands begin to freeze?
Why is it that every time I see you I feel the blood rushing through my veins like a 
raging river?

Could it be because of the strange phenomenon called love?
Could it be because you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen?
Could it be because with you I begin to feel self conscience towards my appearance?
Could it be because you are the one thing that makes me feel alive again?

Every time I touch your soft skin I feel alive again, 
Every time I see your angelic face I feel my life has a purpose again,
Every time I hear your voice I hear it ringing in my mind like a song composed 
especially for me,
Every time I dream of you I wish I would never wake up.

Yet if only you knew of what was inside me,
If you could only read my mind and understand what I felt,
If you could just see my sight of the future I imagine us having together,
I’m sure you would come running into my arms which would be wide open awaiting 
you.

    As a nurse, I could recommend a tranquilizer, otherwise, enjoy the trip, sounds great to me! :)
