I used to watch your beauty pass,
Hoping you would stop and grasp.
In awe of your beauty, I wished that you were mine.
I thought ‘ how lucky would I be ‘.
My little bit of perfection,
Such an angel, demure with no affliction,
Far too good for me.
You are a graceful wisp, a delicacy of the finest flavour.
You are the air I breathe, the flowers that I smell,
You are the woman I wake up to, and the dreams I go to sleep with.
There is not an ounce of me that does not love you,
Nor is there a millimeter of my being that does not yearn for you.
You came into my life like an earthquake hitting home.
Your sweet sounds, your resolute opinion,
Your very own demeanor cascading down,
All coursing through my veins with the vehemence of an unstoppable tide.
Am I dreaming above my weight, could this really be my fate.
To have the love of you so proud, to hold you every day with shroud,
To be the one to caress your lips, to heal your woes, be your support.
What is it that I have done to get to cherish my only one.
You’re amazing, every day you shine my light.
I’m stunned, a thunderbolt embedded deep into my heart.
There is only underestimate, no one,
not even you can truly fathom exactly how much I love you.
I will endeavour to show you every day.
A dventurous to the core
R esplendent beauty.
M ely to some,
E verything to me.
L uscious in all you are
I ngrained with allure,
T actile with every pore.
A true Enigma.
You are the apple of my existence,
To take you for granted would be to insult civilization itself.
I am star struck, I am numb with love for you.
I have never felt this before.
You are akin to an array of mystic galaxies,
Your heaven and earth are all my fantasies,
You are the greatest I have ever seen,
You are my life with all esteem.
