A touch on the arm
A smile
A compliment
One look into your beautiful, blue-green eyes
All I have
I keep in my mind
Replaying over and over
My playlist of you
Of all the little things
The only ones I have
For what good
Is money or possessions
When the one you love
Will never be yours?
When you have to imagine
How it would feel
For your lips to meet?
I'd never tell you
How much I love to hear you speak
How many times I've listened to you
Watched you from across the room
Or how many times I've feared
That you'd realize it
And you can never find out
That my eyes have never seen someone
The way they see you
That my heart has never soared so high
As it did when you touched me
Or that each second I realize more and more
I'm falling
I'm falling
For you

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I can connect so much. Your poem is amazing, absolutely wonderful. And you're right. It's the little things that matter, because that's where big things start from it too. But all in all, little things matter as much as big things.Your poem could be a song, too. You have such a talent. Thank you for sharing this!
