Butterflies to Stay

It’s easy falling into lust
sharing moments of passion
Falling in love, though
involves the heart
and much more compassion

Striving for “forever”
isn’t always a stroll in the park
but it’s a package worth opening
to experience that spark

It’s feeling those
beautiful butterflies
dancing inside
and sharing your world
with nothing to hide

It’s knowing you are special
even with your flaws
An eternal heart
loves you just because

It’s all of these and so much more
It’s having someone to adore
through all the mess
and all the calm
to comfort through the storm

One and Only

Her heart sings when he says her name
The tiniest things ignite their flame
A simple gesture he does is grand
The simplicity of taking her hand
He makes her smile when he holds the door
Old fashioned and thoughtful, which she adores
Her breath catches when he holds her close
Sensations slide to the tips of her toes
When she wakes in the morn and hears him breathe
It’s that very moment she truly believes
