In your smile I feel what essence is,
by your thoughts, the grace of life,
and your eyes reveal the universe,
a radiance that takes my breath.
My shell dissolves and leaves me naked,
I'm vulnerable when you look my way,
but safe behind this window pane,
you cannot see my shame.
Because I wait for you, at ten past nine,
each and every day,
with promise made, I paint of you,
the rose that feeds my flame.
About this Poem: Inspired by the quote below from Rumi...
"In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that light becomes this art.” ~Rumi
