You Are...

You Are...

A Poem by Ian Faraway

A passion filled poem, I'm sure


A gentle hand

To touch a soft cheek

Eyes struggling

To fight back the tears


“My friend,” I say

“My life.”

Voice cracks

As if trying to stop the words


Stare deeply

Into the eyes I’ve come to love

Her eyes

Look back with the same emotion


“I’ve walked the darkness alone

In search of light.”

Mind races

To find the right words


“I’ve been in the cold alone

In search of warmth”

Heart thumps

As the secrets slowly come out


“My world has been burned down by pain”

All the while

She keeps looking into my eyes

In search of something


“Only to be rebuilt

By magic I can’t explain.”

She smiles

As my voice becomes a whisper


“I’ve found my light in the darkness.

I’ve found warmth in the cold.

And my world is more magnificent

Than it was before.”


A tear is shed

And slides slowly down her cheek

I choke back my own

As I wipe hers away



“You are my light.

You are the warmth.

You are my world.”

Her eyes become watery again


A moment of silence

That brief, perfect moment

She is perfect

An angel in the eyes of a sinner


One last stroke

To a teary cheek

“I love you.”

This time, a tear comes to my eye


I spoke the words softly

Worried about what I had said

Deep down

Words cannot do my feelings justice


But then a hand against my face

To keep me from looking away

Her hands so tender

Her eyes filled with passion


The words

I only dreamt of hearing

Coming from her soft lips

“I love you, too

Whats weird about that is that love poems were not as popular a few months back. Poems WERE and are pretty over popular on this site but love poems? Nah. It's popular now because of me. ;)

There's nothing particularly wrong with this one, but love poetry feels to me like an over-popular genre.

This piece reminds me of my husband and makes my heart sing. You know much about love and anyone that tells you otherwise is an idiot.
