Storybook Kinda Romance

I love being in love with you.

I love the soft sound of your breathing

when I wake every morning

as if every exhale breathes new life into me.

I watch your chest rise and fall

Like the endless roll of the ocean waves

that lead our ancestors

here, home and to each other.

When you wake,

you bring the sunlight with you

warming my body & soul with your rays,

And I am blanketed in our storybook romance.

I connect your freckles like ancient constellations,

maps to the stardust that wove us together in the cosmos.

Every day with you is another chapter in the book I’ll never stop writing.
