i stare at her
as if i have seen
an angel
entranced by a smile
that could erase
an entire world
of all its sorrows
she has the most
beautiful eyes
and in them
i see my life
and the whole purpose
for my existence
i see children
not yet born
my soul
now swims in a sea
that overflows with
the love i have
for her
my heart fills with
every word that
leaves her mouth
every syllable
she speaks
is a sweet song
which makes
song birds weep
i close my eyes
and loose myself
in the rapture
of her presence
i cry silently because
mine is a destiny
truly defined....

    Yes do submit additional pieces. There is a relaxed review of loveable elements relating to your driver mate.
    You two have treasure. Unvarnished adoring words. Good stuff. Remember same when she calls you out for forgetting to pick up the list of groceries.
