To My Love

To my love,
Who knows the value of a kiss,
And has a smile I will always miss.
To my love,
The one responsible for the jolt in my heart,
Regardless of the distance,
We cannot keep our souls apart.
To my love,
I can’t wait to feel your lips,
As I float across them with my fingertips.
To my love,
The one I hold near,
Know that when I am with you,
There isn’t a single fear.
