At this moment, like most, thoughts of you walk my mind,
The greatest woman existent in mankind.
Faults you may have which at times result in my dismay,
But regret is not my portion, and will not be to my final day.
This golden opportunity has revealed many things,
Once a cold place, now like a bird my heart sings.
I realize my true potential to love and to trust,
So much more there is, in my life you are a must.
Like my supply of air you keep me alive,
In remaining in this realistic fantasy, I can only thrive.
You are the butter to my bread, the healing to my heart’s confusion,
To every intimate problem, you are surely my solution.
So many times there are no appropriate methods I find,
To reward you for your enrichment to body, soul and mind.
This amazing union erases the dream/reality border,
Since I’ve been with you, they are now one romantic order.
Again I have tried to express this, so much still left unsaid,
This love a constant fire, one always burning red,
Accomplished I now feel after all our joy and despair,
And for my given reasons, I will always hold you near.
