This is the first time Michael (lastromantichero) Meddings and I have written together. He is a dear friend to me. I hope you enjoy it. I certainly enjoyed the opportunity to write with such a talented poet.

Essence (co-write with Michael Meddings)

Thrills that couldn't happen again
I really couldn't remember when
I felt so much in love

Like a butterfly's fluttering wings
My heart's voice with vibrato sings
An aria of love

And the essential Joy in you
Is what beautifully takes me through
Any heartache

The tenderness of our embrace
And your soft caress across my face
Enraptures my soul

Thus the beauty within you 
and the little things that you do 
keep you in my mind 

And like the waves upon the sea
your love swells deeply inside of me
thrilling me forever

Nicely done both of you!I read this poem few hours ago but I still can't find the word to describe the feeling the aftertaste of the poem. . . But oh well some feelings are better left unsaid :) But one thing is for sure I will always remember the feeling that this poem made me feel!Thank you both of you :)

A collaboration most sweet, my friends!

so lovely done
i like it

Your words in this poem are so soft so walking on tip toes over morning clouds ... and still they tell of the one most strongest emotion in life - Love - the one thing that can heal wounded hearts and make us accept the most difficult situations in our lives .. and still this softness of love and the strength ... the one that has such impact on us as it sits beside us in life ... I love the way this poem tells of love in this strong and yet so soft way

your words blend together in this perfectly... a beautiful co write and a wonderful read this friday morning .....

oh, it definitely works:) you complete each other very well here
splendid work!
