Hearts Afire


Standing here looking at you, the soft moonlit glow
shining all about you, how can I not be moved
by the fiery essence of your soul
When you say my name I feel your breath
brush over my skin like a warm summer breeze
When you look in my eyes I see a fire burning bright
you set my heart afire you set me free
what a glorious way to burn, making my insides sizzle
The magic of the night whispers in my ear
and you hold me tight as dawns light
breaks early morn beneath libyrinths of Autumn skies
My eyes caress you and my heart is full
for the first time in what seems an eternity
my mind wonders realizing this is the moment
I started falling for you, there is a calming in my soul
and all of life's uneven loads are lighter
You have made my life brighter and I am
lost in knowing you are all I have ever wanted
and dreamed of you've become my saving grace
I took your hand and you pulled me
from that dark and dreary place
that I dwelled in for so long
my heart sings and my soul soars
knowing you are falling for me too
