Our hearts beat as one

autumn

When I look at you,
I can’t catch my breath.
Your smile lights my world.
I am giddy with love.

You are my harbour.
My safe haven from storms.
Love sighing with joy.
Two hearts beating as one.

My eyes scan for you.
My heart sees you first.
Love singing to the beat.
Everyone fades except you.

There is fire in your eyes.
Desire with every heartbeat.
Love anchors our hearts.
As my world tilts, I fly.

Years from now I’ll see.
Our love, a mirror image.
We have mellowed with time.
Our hearts beat as one.
