Hope fills the void left behind by the loss of your presence in my life
This new thing, unnamed blossoms within my chest 
Could it be that someone new has found his way through my defenses
His scent dulls the pain until it is no more
I find myself reaching out in the middle of the night 
to make sure he continues to lay beside me
The tears of anguish now transformed to tears of joy 
He awakens the woman in me
My core longs for the penetration of laughter he brings into my world
No longer on the outside of happiness looking in;
actively I cultivate late night phone calls into face to face conversations
The “I” of my present thought process slowly gives way to the “WE” of my future plans
Dangerous territory no doubt as my mind warns me to take care
But my heart as courageous as ever opens to allow more of you inside
Euphoric is this feeling 
The Newness of you and me elicits girlish giggles so long unheard
From my night dreams to my day dreams I find your presence ever growing
Crowded when I’m with you and crazy when I’m not
Hot like fire is my passion for you 
Even if I wanted to I could not stop… falling….
Trembling within the intensity of our connection
My lips taste your kiss sweet like honey
I wonder “where have you been all my life?”
