In the vault that is my heart
there is only you.
Each chamber imbued with your essence,
each beat an echo of your love.
Time and space matter not,
for you are always with me, always a precious part of me.
Your kind gestures and quiet devotion sustain me,
Your soulful brown eyes consume me.
I will love you until the final beat of my heart,
the last sigh from my grateful lips, your name.
(To my Dan for Valentine’s Day.)
