Laying with you

I like it when our foreheads are close and touching.
Behind closed eyes and furrowed brow -
I think intensely of how much I adore you

How every inch of you feels like home - almost exactly like touching myself.
I send my thoughts toward your thoughts about how I wish we could stay like this forever.
I think to myself and towards you " I wish this moment would never end"
I dream of how I'll miss you when you pull away.
My affection for you and the idea of your absence brings tears to my closed eyes.

All good things do come to an end,
But I pray we never have to.

The air tastes better when I breathe it with you.
The warmth and softness of your skin - everything about you - it invites me in.
You are a dream destination I want to make my home.
To be on constant vacation, to come home to you each day and rest with you

With my eyes closed, I think one last time
"I love you better than words can describe"
Opening my eyes, I see you
And I can't help smile while looking at you.

Sarah! How come twelve earlier readers didn't comment on this beautifully romantic poem? Maybe it is because the pressures of the modern world have driven romanticism into a corner, I don't know. But I am a self confessed romantic, and I put your poem amoung my favourites of all time. Very touching. Bravo.
Blessings, Allen
