It's the reality for me.

Declaration of love

By Dr. Constance QuigleyPublished 2 years ago 1 min read
Declaration of love, poem 3, for a future publication of many ;)

It is the quiet temperament,

The excitement when we read,

It is the subtle heat behind your laugh,

That did so much for me.

It is the way you speak to my soul,

You never speak at me,

The way adventure pulls you in,

If it puts you with me.

It's the softness of your touch,

How you make me feel complete,

It's how you always put me first,

It's how much you choose me.

It's our combined duality,

A shared spirituality,

It's the normality of our day,

The lived practicality.

It is the way you say my name,

How you wait for me to eat,

It is the little things you do,

That does so much for me.

It is knowing I want to make you smile,

To keep you joyous and free,

That lets me know our love is shared,

And inspires me to be,

As much the woman in your heart,

As the companion at your sleeve,

To be your Queen with souls entwined,

And Champion in deeds.

It's the reality for me.
