My Longing

As I sit here in the quiet stillness of my apartment in the early morning light I look at your picture and feel the warmth of your smile. As I look at the empty bed I am able to imagine you there sleeping, watching you breathe, taking in your beautiful face, feeling so much in love with you and like the luckiest man on earth.

Oh how I long for that day when I awake with you next to me, wrapped in my arms. Your head on my chest, smelling the sweetness of your hair, feeling the softness of your skin, the warmth of your breath and seeing the love in your eyes as they open.

There isn't a moment in the day when you are not in my thoughts and my love for you grows. I know that one day my lonely nights will end and I will get to spend the rest of my days growing old with you. You are my Josephine and my love for you has no boundaries.
