Since First I Saw You


Since first I saw you,
it was your eyes,
mesmerizing me,
your gaze transporting me to a realm,
not of fantasy, real,
where young men go when cupid’s arrow takes root.

Since first I saw you,
it was your lips, captivating me,
holding me frozen in anticipation of our lips
brushing for the first time.

Since first I saw you,
it was your voice, a crescendo,
light, invigorating,
each word you speak intensifies my hearing,
enveloping each note,
time ceases as I hang motionless savoring, memorizing.

Since first I saw you,
it was your hair, long,
flowing, gently rising above your shoulders
as a slight breeze passes through,
sending waves of your essence my way.

The sun magnifying each strand,
highlighting the minute variances of invigorating color,
creating a halo effect,
a portrait of your beauty forever imprinted.

Since first I saw you,
It was you,
my love forever more for you,
only you.
