I Am in Awe

I am in awe.
Your words reached out to me, caressed my soul
With the eloquent fingers of deep thought.
Would that I could put forth my own words
Phrases that could give admiration
For a talent possessed.
My heart is touched and I find myself
At a loss; words are too inadequate.
Lest I speak and spoil this magic
I turn to you, a twinkle in my eye
Giving light to something deeper and as intimate
As souls bound together by fate and promise.
My hands glide up to your face,
Every line already known to me,
They feel as welcome as a whispered
Word of love, for within each touch
I speak my heart and my own.
Your words bring me to my knees.
Within them, I find hope
Faith and the most inspiring truth of love.
