The Contradictions of Love

Dedicated to the most wonderful man for being part of my life

You came into my life unexpectedly,
And became the difference between today
And what used to be
With your gentle touch
You struck me like lightning,
And kindled a fire
That burnt through my whole being
With your soft-spoken words,
You yelled in my ears,
With your understanding nature,
You wiped away all my tears.
You put me on a pedestal with my feet on the ground,
Your eyes spoke of love so loud,
Though your lips made no sound.
You made me your princess,
The queen of your heart
And where ever you are tonight 
May the flame of our love keep us together,
While the fence of distance keep us apart....
