The feeling of peace I received when reading your poem is indescribable. I am amazed at how you seem to take the most precious moments of life, and also the simplest, put them in words and leave the reader with the taste and atmosphere of it. It's like all my stress can just fade into the background....muscles relax and my heart smiles at this images of joy in our lives!
I definitely agree with the first sip of coffee and the bliss chocolate can bring.....haven't yet experienced looking at a baby's smile but it truly must be heavensent. Each stanza kept getting more graceful and more magnificent in the man you are- strong because of her- strong because of love.
Nice touch at the end of capitalizing angel eyes, making it personal and believing forever she is your true angel.
A really calming piece, I just all-in-all enjoyed it. Keep it up- of course! And thanks for your thoughts on my work as well :)
I love how love changes ordinary people into queens and kings. The feeling of being loved this way by another person really does something to your self esteem. I think we all deserve to have this kind of relationship in our lives:)
I love the analogies and yup, it does feel like all these emotions all wrapped into one!

Lovely piece, bro.. I like how you describe the nuances of your lover when she eats, drinks, swims...
Did you ever notice
the sensation that comes
over you after biting off
a piece of chocolate and
letting it melt slowly
on your tongue?
^Your opening stanza has made me hungry for chocolates! That is indeed a sensation that no words can describe and to feel love that way is just magical!!
How about that cool
refreshing dip in a pool
when the scorching summer
sun torments your skin.
^This is indeed interesting. To be soothed by the coolness of love's touch after life's burning reality.
The experience of a babies first smile,
as his tiny fingers reach out to
hold on to your hand? Soft
cooing sounds tease tears
of joy .
^Any mother, for that matter any parent can relate to this feeling. To feel the fingers of an innocent child touching us is like God's tender love healing us..well at least that is what as a mother I feel..a lovely stanza!
As I look into your angel eyes
all these sensations wash over
me. A combined expression of
what your love does to me.
^They say that a person's eyes reveals a lot and it can also encourage and lift a sad heart. The one you love has warmth and moves your soul..that is what love is all about, to touch you and renew you and take you to great heights.
I live in a dream , wading in
a magic pond of emotions
that dance around me. In your
eyes I see the man I can be, strong
protective and yours forever.
I love you Angel Eyes
^ :) any woman would want this. To have a man who will always be there for her in everywhere..like a knight!
Enjoyed this heart warming read..take care.
I do agree to the above comments somewhat though I do not think that this poem is "just beautiful". Well, yes it is beautiful, but in my opinion it gives that word a new definition, a more gentle and stronger meaning at once. More gentle as you being at ease while telling and the reader while reading, the tone is really soft, but filled with conviction and stronger as in the emotions in this poem, slowly entwining around you as you read, giving you some sort of hug, sharing the happiness with you. I hope that makes sense.
Usually love poems are directed at one specific person, which ends up warming their heart in this very special way, but your poem obviously managed to touch many as we can see in the above comments and it also got to me.
I am sure you'll be able to keep that spirit up for a long while. Absolutely well written and touching poem, which shows your heartiness very well.
Awhh I really love that title, its cute in an elegant way
as is the poem, this is a love poem. :) so deeply felt by the reader. . . . strong emotions
you can really tell the love it holds :) nicely written

All of the special little moments - Moments that make you feel all warm and fuzzy, even relaxed and happy inside!! I adore this poem!! You did a wonderful job portraying your feelings for your special someone! Adorable!! ^_^
I often find love poems on this site soppy, idealistic and too far away from reality but upon reading this I felt waves of refeshment because this poem is excellent I couldn't help but be moved by its sweetness.
I love how you drew the reader in by listing simple everyday things the reader can relate to.
This poem made me think of my fiance and I loved how you combined being soft, gentle and sweet without being cheesey or idealistic.
There is an air of honesty in this piece that I am sure many people in love can relate too.
I'm lost in your poem! HaHa :P .. Ahh such I lovely write for that special lady :) Very romantic, touching and expressed so beautiful... with the images expressed all wrapped up into one word ~ LOVE :)
Well written and expressed TJ! :D
You've got it ;) ~ Talent
I cannot decide if this is written for a specific person in your life right now or just your imagination gathering these wonderful thoughts and feelings to express to your love when they appear. In either case, these are experiences that any woman would know and understand just how much you do love her. Everyday happenings that I will no longer think of as ordinary thanks to your words.
