My beautiful darling, my perfect lover, my dearest. . .
As we get closer,
I might laugh a little too loud,
You might eat a little too much,
My joke would fall flat

Roses! Wine! Sweep you off your feet!
As our lips embrace,
Perhaps I kiss a little too hard
You might poke me a in the eye
I might snore that night (it was wine after all)

Ah, but the moonlight inspires romance! and love!
I forget to hold a door for you
You might pick your nose more freely
I kiss you with my morning breath

I will not always be handsome
and you will not always be beautiful
and love is mortal, as are we

But I give you my awkwardness, 
 my romantic heart,
  my forgetfulness,
   my poetry,
    my strange body,
     my devotion,
      my neuroses,
I give it all to you. . .

I'll will always make you smile,
and when I am in your arms, 
I will always feel warm
for what is love, if not an agreement to see each other
to really, really see each other, 
and still our eye shine,
our lips curl like clouds in the wind, 
and we sigh, together.

Haikus Dreaming

Dream of you last night
Walking along the water
I am your warm scarf

When you are in need, 
I am your man. I am oak 
place your back to me

From you, I only
steal glances by the millions
return them often

Dream my hand in yours
warm, firm, and we are ready
the whole world is ours

Place your hand on me
Feel my solid heart, beating
Leaping to meet you

I hold you close, with
my whole heart, both hands, fingers
crossed, and arms open

Kiss me like a kite
caught on a tree in a storm
free me, welcome me.

For you are my moon
the moon that makes the sun shine 
and the oceans burn

Let our branches grow,
and brush, and touch, and tangle,
until our storm. . . comes

Night slips by our bed,
tangled, we blissfully dream. . .
magic, in our skin.

Sunlight on Water

Look at me, my love
I am sunlight on water,
because I have you :)

Look at me as I look at you
You are moonlight
cooling my hot skin

We are two hands, clasped together
Fingers mixing in warmth
as sand dancing beneath the waves
fish, flick their silvery tails
donating scales to star our endless blue

And when we part, as at times we must
I'll reach you with a loving pen
until nightly, we find 
our way together again
