Affairs of the heart
As long as I see a smile 
I know that I live
As long as I know you are here 
I know I have some more time to breathe
My heart beats by your breath
Programmed only to love one
Don’t say you love me
My heart knows you do 
Our silent moments…..
A whole heart to heart conversation goes on

As long as I see a smile
My mouth never runs dry
It will always tell you 
Broadcast the secrets of the heart 
Secrets that the heart would rather keep to its self
Always green my eyes will stay 
Seeing you smile to another
My heart will never stop 
Beat rhythmically to the tarantella of your beauty
My mind will always be alert
Thinking of you
My mouth always mime your name
Obsessed you may call it 
I think it is hypnotization

Tears down your cheeks 
I’ll dry them with affection
Your sorrows,
Change them into joy
A walking stick
I’ll be for you 
A royal carriage ill carry you everywhere
Your shoes
Ill fit my feet to feel where they pinch most
Tenderize the spot before you put them on

I don’t want
Fall in love with you
I really don’t
Grow in love with you I want
For in falling 
I might never rise again
Buckle up your seatbelt
For a drive into heaven
Where everything is a word away
Your love is well preserved
Your joy is my inspiration
Your body is my blanket
Your love is my pride 
You are me

    I love the lines: "I don't want to fall in love with you.... Grow in love with you I want." That is (in my experience) what makes for lasting love and relationships. Thank you for visiting my page. Blessings, Suzette
