Always

Tonight you asked me
when I speak of home
do I mean my place
do I mean your place
or do I mean the place we share together?
Where you are
that is my home
where I can relax
I can unabashedly be me.
I can do my thing
as you do yours
we are not disconnected.
I can sit here writing
as you sit and talk
each of us
spinning stories
truths that others do not get.
Babe you are my life
you are my soul
you are……
love
sweetness
my heart.
Wrapped in your arms
your lips on my ear
whispering
how much you love me.
Look in my eyes
see the smile on my lips
never ever
should you wonder
for babe
I will love you for always.
