I Felt Her Near

I felt her near, before she was close
Closing my eyes, feeling her becoming
Allowing far more than I had imagined
This is what is meant for being alive

Giving me back what had escaped
This warmth as we came together
Desiring her taste on my tongue
Maybe she had wanted me to hear

What I missed in her words
Touch that belonged to her
I knew she wouldn't forget
Her hand tracing as we met

Feeling her life grow inside me
Love remains the always thought
Silence growing into expression
To saying what we may hold back

The mind struggling to vocalize
Let me love just as you have me
Supporting if you may be unable
Where your heart wants its rest

Not just stopping along the way
Slowly but surely we are moving
Growing our life as us together
Staying forever rooted with you
