More Than Butterflies
a smile finds it’s way to my face
as my mind takes a walk with you.
count all the things in this world to wonder about,
I mostly wonder of you…
how many tears have you held,
and what of the ones you let slip to the floor?
the number of lovers you’ve had,
number of kisses,
I wonder what you wonder.
I picture my face kissing yours-
my heart takes off!
and crashes like waves on every bank, coast, seaside, shore!
my blood is a river at light speed-
and in your eyes (in my mind)
I have found the universe, happiness and everything.
I have battled every muscle,
but love is the most brilliant warrior of us all.
I have lost and in return I am amazed, triumphant.
I am more than a storm
I am mist.
and you light my infinite intricate water-droplets
with more colors than the sun brings the Earth!
I wonder if you see this too.
yes, you make me feel more wondrous than the Northern Lights!
like I am floating with the birds-dancing down Victoria Falls!
you have taken my body and thrown me into a beautiful pit of love and terror-
and, I? ..am hang-gliding
and I am soaring through the Great Barrier Reef.
I wonder if you feel this, too.
