United As One

United As One

I look out the window of my heart

And see a face, one face

Hidden there, enclosed within.

That face, so soft,

Looks at me,

Gentle eyes regarding

A vulnerable heart.

He takes my hand and

Holds it, softly pressing

Lighted fingers on my palm.

With his other hand he

Takes my chin, and ever so gently

Turns my face so we're now

Looking at each other,

Our eyes screaming love.

He smiles and leans forward,

Pressing his velvet lips on

My battered cheeks.

My heart skips a beat,

And I hold him close,

As close as our souls,

Sweet love united as one.
