Inhaling her scent, thankful for moments
a smile she flashes while reading
her, to me, filling my heart up fast.
I wonder, does she know
how much brighter my life
how she so easily takes
a gloomy day, then turns, says
I’ll take care of you soon
It seems as though fish
aren’t striking my bait, but
perhaps they too
are listening to her every word
mesmerized by the coo
she softly whispers into
the very depths of my longing soul.
