How can I be in love?
I've never met you
I've not even heard your voice

Yet still, you touch
my every emotion
with your words
passionate words
inspirational words
sentimental words of truth

Your words of love
touch my heart
enlighten my mind
fill my soul with inner peace

Each day I wake
with anticipation
to read your words
Your messages of love
give me hope
give me strength
give me courage to carry on

At night before I sleep
I rest my eyes
Silently, I hear your words
repeating in my mind
over and over
I listen with intent

I am in love
Oh, yes it's true
My heart's desire
is to be with you

To see you
to feel you
to hear you
to love you

To bask in the glory
of your words
words of love
you cast upon me

How can I be in love?
I don't know
I just am

A Native New Yorker, I've been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. It is my hope that someone may find solace in my words.
