What I feel for you

January 1, 2016 - Heart matters, In Love, Tenderness
What I feel for you

What I feel for you is love, love without limits
Love that knows no horizon or beacons
I adore your presence and almost worship you
My love traverses all earthly matters

Daughter of the moon
You make my life worth the struggle
Your charisma is like nice perfume
Your smile is like sweet music
I look at you and consider it pure luck that you are mine

When I look at your beauty, I can only sit back and adulate
Your eyes are like two cow-peas in a tray of yellow maize
Your dark silky hair is like the president’s flywhisk
Your pierced nose is placed perfectly
And your lips?
They are as soft as a child’s, begging for kisses
I can only dream that you bear me children that are half as beautiful

You are my standard unit for measuring beauty
I know of no other flower as beautiful
The lilies and roses can only come so close
The sight of you makes me forget about all other things
You make my day … any day … every day

I love you too much, always biased on your case
I overlook your faults and misconducts unknowingly
The love that I have for you makes me drunk
It makes me stagger and do crazy things
It makes me make utterances that on a normal day would go for Mexican soap opera script lines

My love for you is like a permanent river
Always filled with fresh water throughout the year
My love is like honey which never goes bad
It’s like pure silver which knows of no rust
My love for you is like a majestic fig tree with roots up to the water-table
