244. All I Can See Is You - Poem by John Westlake

There are over 100 people in this room
all of them in brightly coloured clothes
but all I can see is you
in your dark blue dress with flowers in your hair
looking back at me and smiling

There are over 100 people in this room
all of them talking loudly
but all I can hear is your voice
asking me how I feel

There are over 100 people in this room
offering me pointless presents
but all I can see is you
offering me your heart and love
to me the greatest gifts of all

There are over 100 people in this room
all of whom are trying to touch me in some way
but all I can feel is your arms
holding me close to you

There are over 100 people in this room
celebrating our wedding day
but I have eyes for none of them
all I can see is you
