                     Longing
    
      These eyes
         longing to see your face
         look into your eyes, your soul,
         to know

       These ears
          longing to hear your voice
          whispers of love, your dreams,
          to know

       These lips
          longing to kiss yours
          to kiss your softness, so tender,
          to know

       These arms
          longing for your warm embrace
          to feel you close, breathing,
          to know

       This heart
          longing to beat with yours
          to be in harmony, as one,
          to know

       To know as eternal souls can know
          that Love is all there is,
          ...........it is enough!

I'm longing to feel what you are trying to deliver, very nice poem!
I hope that you don't have to long for her much longer.

A beautiful portayal of the 'secret' place
in the heart.  Left me feeling haunted and
hungry for I-don't-know-what.

This is a lovely poem that I am sure many - even most - can relate to...

Well done.

Excellent Danny!

Silly I know, but when reading this it feels like a big hug, the kind that makes you feel all warm and loved.

Great Job! It's beautiful.

Danny~
I feel the romance in your words.

'To know as eternal souls can know
          that Love is all there is,
          ...........it is enough!

What a wonderful truth.

Danny~
Simple and not.
I like the sentiment behind the words.
Nicely displayed in structure, too.
GOOD JOB!
