Today I Looked At You - Poem by Kay Conlon

Today I looked at you
Studied every angle of your face
Your nose, your eyelashes, your mouth
I tried to engrave every inch of you into my mind
So I would not forget a single detail
I drank you in as you stood before me
Appearing completely oblivious of my stealing your essence
As I knew I would not see you
For a while

    Great job Kay. I've done this as I think many of us have. I've never put into words what I was doing though, I'm glad you did. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    First I wish to write to you this is from deep of the poem more than a life and love
