It’s been quiet while you’ve been away
I miss your voice and the smile your words bring to my lips
Without you here, I must hold it in
The wit, bellowing laugh, the me not shared with others
In my space alone, I gain peace
And in contemplation, confidence
I’ve seen it’s you who endures
Your beat the one coinciding with mine
You’re the one who stays at my side
Making me laugh for all to hear
Making me wish you were always near
Because you have beheld me inside my skin
You come back to me with arms open
Drawing me close to whisper in my ear
That you see the beauty beyond my eyes
And that you’re glad I see you through them
Gazing into each other’s blues
We delve deeper as the words flow
Sharing and creating between us
Our together reality, made true in love
