My Lily

If I may be forward
Dear Lily,
If I may recite these line
wet with ardent admiration.
Words reserved for quiet times
between friends... lovers.

Dear Lily,
I must admit the sun sets
in your eyes
and I find myself following
it into the depths of your soul.
Immersed in the sweet song
of your heartbeat
feeling closer to home than
I ever have.
I'd be lying if I said
you weren't often on my mind.
If I said your voice doesn't
bring me to life with every
sound it wraps around.

Dear Lily,
you are the centerpiece
in the garden of my heart.
The fields of my soul often
carry your name on their breeze
And I am adrift among them
like some lovesick child.

Dear Lily
My Lily
if only in my mind
if only in my heart

You are

My Lily.
