I am just lying in bed
watching you brush your teeth.
You occasionally look back
and catch me staring.
How can I not?
You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, even when you’re just brushing your teeth.
right after I kiss you
I look into your eyes
and I swear I can see your heart in them.
I’ve heard more metaphors for love
than I could possibly remember,
but no metaphor really paints the picture
of how much I love you.
I’ve heard more love songs
than I could ever sing to you,
but no lyrics could really say the words
that I am looking for.
I’m just sitting in Starbucks,
waiting for you to get here
while I write this poem.
You’re the best thing to wait for.
Better than Christmas presents or Thanksgiving turkey.
So I am going to sit here and wait,
ready to smile when I see you walk through the door.
