Just You

Just You


This is what I want you to write for me, to say to me, to whisper…

The touch of your hand,
The smile on your face,
The look in your eyes,
The sweetness of your voice,
Has coloured up my colourless world.

The words you utter,
Every breath you take,
Each time your lashes flutter,
And whenever our eyes meet,
I forget who I am, what I am, and why I am here.

This new feeling that has overwhelmed me, makes me question you.
What spell have you thrown over me?
How have your whispers left me breathless?
How have your eyes wrapped light around my heart?
These colours, where, how, when did it all happen?

I know not who you are,
But I do know that you won’t let me rest.
I know not how you did this,
But I do know that for once I am not afraid of falling.

I am not afraid of falling in love with you,
And, if you just give me a chance,
I will show you what love truly is.
