My Lover, My Life


Mark Mitchell

You lay beside me in the sanctity of our bed
Your eyes are closed but I’m looking at you, wonderment fills my head
I still can’t believe you’re mine or why to me you were led
In the union of our relationship, all my hungers are fed

Silence covers our embrace as we rest
Your warm breath flows softly down my chest
For I know it is I that have been truly blest
Your beautiful body my hands do gently caress

Your touch reaches through me and stirs my soul
For it is you that makes me truly whole
My spirit sags when you’re not near
Living without you has become my greatest fear

Our union has joined two souls as one
The bond between us strengthens, it won’t be undone
My lover, everything is secondary to you, you’re my whole life
For I am incomplete, empty without you…my twenty-one year wife
