    Within The Light of Her
    (Falling in Love)

    The stars explode in silence
    and glitter

    Night holds a silent vigil
    over a single candle
    a vestige of, I remember, love

    In the dark behind the blinds
    of my eyes that give birth
    to a constellation of stars
    I fall
    d.......esire
    o.......verrides
    w.......isdom
    n.......ow

    Into a pool
    that leads into a movement
    of her dreams
    singing into a stream
    an acappela solo flows
    like light that emanates
    from forgotten stars
    and induces a warm glow
    I am drowning in her eyes
    Somewhere under brilliant sunlit skies
    That abduct the breath
    Of romantic souls
    And I fall
    As the world fades
    Into a crystal pool of memories
    That escape from her lips
    Allowing me to see her completely
    Not just a fair vision
    but the embodiment of life itself

    Every word that she gives birth to
    Is more potent than the one before
    My eyes enchanted hold her close
    Savoring her thoughts and ideas
    I am listening to spring
    In her voice as her life blooms
    Around me
    In rich moments of joy
    Painted with her priceless smile
    That lift me higher than the clouds
    In haunting moments of pain and sadness
    Drawn with her bittersweet frown
    That drag me down
    So low
    I am buried alive
    Inside liquid diamonds
    That sprinkle from her eyes

    And I wish...
    I could have been there
    I wish I could...
    See myself in her words
    Hear myself in her memories
    Feel myself in her touch

    The stars explode in silence
    and glitter
    d
    o
    w
    n
    Into a flickering revelation...
    To love a women
    You must first understand her.
    In order to understand her
    You must know her.
    In order to know her
    You must spend time with her.
    When you spend time with her
    You must listen
    With eyes that hear her eyes whisper
    With ears that see her mind reach out
    With a heart that feels her soul

    Uh Huh!!

    I like it

    You must always
    REmind
    Her

    That she is beautiful
    And at times
    Switch up
    The romanic
    Flavors
    And surprise her

    As
    Her
    Love
    Trickles
    D
    o
    w
    n
    Upon you
    You feel
    All that she
    Posses entirely
    You know all
    Of her
    Intimate being
    And reasoning
    You can only know and love
    Her
    If you know and love yourself.

    Thanks for that read ma brotha
    I felt that.

    So good to read you again. You stay away just long enough to refresh me so completely when you return. I am in awe of your words of love.

    Thank you
