Why are you looking at me? you ask.
Is something wrong? Are you concerned?
I continue to watch you in your task.
Yes, I was staring. So... what have I learned?

Behind your ear I discovered a site,
Where no other man could have been.
The place where I kissed you last night,
And where I long to kiss again.

I saw for the hundredth time your hair,
The way it bounces when you turn your head.
It was like the first time, I swear,
When we laid together in our bed.

I found the man I wanted to be,
As you focused on your chore.
Your form beguiled him out of me,
Have I learned anything more?

I noticed the way your mouth turned down,
As you bent to straighten what youd done.
I heard the music of your whispered sounds,
As you thought of things yet to come.

I caught your profile in the light,
As you turned and wondered why,
I would smile at your disheveled sight,
With this enchantment in my eye.

Why are you looking at me? you ask.
Is something wrong? Are you concerned?
To answer demands I bend to the task,
And try to explain what it is Ive learned.

Do you know that in you I find,
Everything I need, and then some more?
Hope and love and peace of mind,
Dreams come true, like never before.

If you could only see through my eyes
As I stand here watching you.
Im sure your questions would find replies
To the many things I thought you knew.

My silence is not because I find,
Something wrong or of concern.
Its just that I cant believe youre mine,
Its only now Im beginning to learn.

How very touching! You truly are a lucky man, Long John, to be in love like this. I enjoyed reading this one.

Most excellent Long John! You have truly put your heart into this beautiful piece. I too have received just such a response for staring to long, contemplating how fortunate I am in this life to have one such her. It's a nice feeling to have. Once again, a great work. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous. You are both very lucky to have found one another.
