The Meaning of Forever

I met her by chance, yet it seemed an inevitable fate.
That first moment our eyes locked I saw our future together,
And I suddenly understood the meaning of forever.

As I gently took her hands in mine, electricity jolted me back to life.
Her smile revealed her as the woman for whom I have searched.
Wrapping her in my embrace, I knew I could never bear let go.

I have slowly come to know this enigmatic beauty inside and out:
From her impassioned curiosity and expansive capacity to love,
To her sensitive heart and bustling mind, I love her so completely.

I do not desire her because she is perfect, but because she is she.
Offering an intelligence, an intensity and a calming serenity,
She presents me with insights from the edge of consciousness.

Her presence offers renewal. Her face is eternity enough for me.
Waking beside my love, groggily glancing over at her radiant form,
My soul is filled with an exquisite joy.

This, I think to myself, is true love.
A serene bursting of emotion pervades my every breath.
This, I silently muse, is surely the meaning of forever.
