Only For You - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

I follow you,
where will you go,
love made me blind
and gave me feet
to keep the pace
that you have set.

I feel you, close,
and as you walk
you turn as if to see
the one called me.

It is the scent
the fragrant you
that helps my heart
to smile and beat
for you, only for you.
