The Best Gift

The Best Gift

A Poem by Steven

A little something meant for CHRISTMAS time, which is when this was written.


I wake up bright and early, then look to my side

A smile takes over my face, and so does my pride

Watching you sleep in peace, and I forget to blink

Thank you God”, is the first and only thing I could think

How I ended up here with you, the answer circulates my mind

My body starts to titillate, cause you're just so hard to find

Temperature on the rise, a volcano in pre-eruption

Trying to hold back, so your sleep don't get interruption

I had put my list for Santa, underneath the bare tree

Now my first request is laying here, right next to me

Close my eyes, just to confirm that I'm not dreaming

My lips are sealed, but my heart's plausively screaming

All that I truly wanted, is up close in my possession

Keeping your love forever, is my only real obsession

Promise to cherish you, and treat you with utmost care

Like a purified diamond, baby you're extremely rare

Your skin is the wrapper, and your face is the bow

But the present underneath it all, is what I wanna know

Re-open my eyes to catch you demonstrating a grin

My head is enamored, trying to take all of this in

Our pupils lock, saying silent words, making my heart shift

Closer to you, can't wait to show the world, I got the best gift
