The Way I Love You - Poem by Leslie Alexis
Just hold me close,
I don’t wish for more;
Please, just hold me:
So that I feel your warmth,
Smell your hair, breathe as one
With you; just hold me!
Save the pretty petals,
I prefer the softness of your lips;
As they touch my body.
And save the perfumes,
I prefer the smell of your hair;
For it mesmerizes me.
And save the orchestra,
Just tell me you love me;
It’s in these sounds I find my joy:
For they shower me with your
Tongue's laughter; soothing me
As i know it comes from heart’s joy.
And I love your perfect smile
When I say, ‘I love you, Boo! ’
I love the sparkle that fills your eyes.
My darling dearest, my wife, my love…
‘Twinkle, twinkle: you are my star,
And beautiful, you really are! ’
I love the feel of your hands
As they are being welcomed by mine
As skin first touches skin;
I love the feel, and I love the trill;
The way our fingers intertwine
And Fate says you are mine.
No, I don’t get lost in your eyes,
But in them I found my all.
No, I would not die for you;
But for you I would live.
I would not take from you;
But to you my all I’d give.
You are not the girl of my dreams.
For my thoughts are not so pure;
But you are the woman of my life.
You are not all I ever wanted
But all I would ever need;
And gladly I call you my wife.
