Nothing But The Best - Poem by Douglas Williams

As I watch you sleep this eve,
I see your body move in rhythm.
I hear you exhale as you breathe,
the light fluctuations within.

As I lay next to you,
I understand why I love you so.
It's the many things you do,
that make me cherish you so.

It's the way you smile,
when I tell a terrible joke.

It's the way you take care of me,
when I'm down and out.

It's the way you love me,
when no one else could.

It's the way you talk,
in your best sexy voice.

It's just everything about you,
that makes my life whole.

My life without you,
would be empty and meaningless.
My life with you,
is nothing but the best.
