It was love

It was love

I looked into your eyes and immediately fell in love with you

My breath captured for a moment I could not speak a single word

Something changed that day within my mind, body and soul

It was like the world slowed. almost. to. a. steady. stop.

With only you in my eyes and could not look anywhere else

Yet that was only a single moment in time after the immediacy of meeting you

Like pressing unpause the world became full speed ahead once more

My mind had to think and act with quickness;

Otherwise your impression of me would be somewhat strange

I made you laugh, somehow I did, I made you laugh

Words from my mouth made you giggle making a special smile appear across your face

Somehow I was imparting happiness from one person to the next

Again something changed on that day, I felt love, initial love of a human like never before

History was being made as we spoke and learnt about one another

Time with you, grew, confidence higher, conversations evolved

A trust was building between two hearts that were stronger each day

An hour became a day, a day became a week, a week a month,

A year followed, there was never enough time

I felt love, initial love, but my heart had changed once again. I was in love.

My heart sank when you weren’t there, it grew when I was with you

A physical touch of your hand on mine felt like electric through my body

I had to tell you, those three little words, I love you, as I hinted I did

I read you a passage from a book about love and fondness

We led down in each others arms, it was the perfect moment

The day was drawing to a close as you sat on the edge of the bed

I sat on a chair placing my shoe upon my foot, laces in hand

You leapt towards me, “I love you”, “I love you”

Not once did you say it but twice as you held me tight

You felt what I did, you loved me like I loved you

A kiss on the lips before you left, it felt like the hardest goodbye

Late night the light was still very much bright

As my thoughts of you ran around my mind late into the early morning

My eyes finally closed with you in sight, as tomorrow is another day

I fell asleep that night in sight of love and in deep belief of you and I.
