Of You and Me

I started writing -
Word after word after another
Trying to write a poem -
Of love, of you and me.

I read, deleted and re-wrote
And then erased again.
No words seemed right
To express my love for you -
What I feel within -
When every time I think of you.

Early morning -
When I open my eyes,
I want you to be the first thing I see.
That peaceful face, asleep.
It makes me believe -
Every thing is just the way it is meant to be.

Every moment -
When something happens,
I want you to be the first person to know.
That voice -
Encouraging, comforting, congratulating me,
Makes me realize -
You would always be a call away.

Every night -
When I snuggle close to you
And you wrap your arms around me, a protective circle
I want to lay like this forever -
Head on your chest, listening to your heart beat
And then, feel mine beating in sync with yours -
Forever in Love.

No, no poem can ever describe -
What you mean to me.
No love poem would be enough
To be the poem of you and me
