When I’m With You

     A rare poem from the “mushy” side. There is no way to explain how my mind works, (though it is currently on an extended hiatus) I don’t know where the inspiration for this one came from, perhaps a song on the radio, but the words just came flowing out. I do hope you will enjoy it.

Jake.

When I'm With You..

When I’m With You..

 

When I’m With You

The stars are talking

about you.

The moon is wearing

a smile.

And the sun always shines

a bit brighter

when I’m with you

all the while.

*

The birds in the trees

are so happy

that they sing out

their favorite songs.

And every day

that I’m with you

the world can do me

no wrong.

 *

My pulse beats

a little bit faster

whenever I glimpse

at your face.

But the touch of your hand

sends me reeling.

And in my heart

you’ll have always, a place.

 *

When I’m with you

there’s no hours.

Only seconds that go

whisking on by.

But a second with you

leaves me wanting

to give forever

a try.
