The Beat In My Heart
Beyond the realm of comprehension,
Her simple smile can mean perfection
Mention her name, and my spirits take flight,
To reach the heavens themselves, an angelic delight
Her voice is so soothing, like waves on the shore,
Her kiss is refreshing, her laugh I adore
Her grace is unnerving, as she glides cross floor,
Her kindness is maddening, tenderness her lore
Her eyes are like sapphire that pierces my soul,
Her hair flows like silk, that my hands do extol
Her beauty can put a rose to shame,
of a blind man can see,
But something more shocking and hard to believe,
Is her love she has chosen to give to me
How could she possibly love me this way?
I am simply a mortal, just a man made of clay
Theres nothing in me thats truly appealing,
My knowledge is little, my appearance is fleeting
I have no great wealth, no silver, no gold,
The clothes on my back are tattered and old
But when she says that she loves me, my doubts fade away,
Only to surface another day
I will always wonder, why she gives me her love,
But my life is perfection, as long as she does,
My life would end, if we were to part,
For shes the breath in my lungs, and the beat in my heart.
