You're a Poem

Much like a poem are you to me, my love.
Your breath's rhythm I feel and am in awe of,
For it's like a breeze that takes me sky high
Releases me, then catches me that I'll not cry...
You are the trill that gives life to my soul.
You are the pulse that makes my heart whole.

You touch me with words and make me warm
and with the same, of your best you do perform.
Your voice cadences until it becomes a song.
Your smile's a simile that you and I belong.
You take me places that in myself I'd never see.
You mean any and EVERYTHING to me.
