. I’m Here __Your smile, it hypnotizes. It rises with the Inca doves and sun. __Sleep done, your love surprises And spices dawn with lush and precious fun. __Your widened eyes are fashioned In passion that I simply can’t dismiss. __Insistent, blue and flashing A brash and playful prelude to a kiss. __Your words and music heat me, Complete me with the wonders of your mind. __Bind me to you, treat me To sweetest odes and arias entwined. __I know our spirits mirror. It’s clearer every year and I am still __So thrilled to have you nearer--- I’m here, I love you, and I always will. . . Mike Bryant is a poet and retired plumber living on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
