My Heart a Wild Rose

I'm situated between
the gentle touch
of your skin
pressed against
my own

My heart a wild rose
& you
ready to trim the thorns.

You've made a home
inside my soul

I'll never let you go.

From the words
you carefully chose

to the soft subtle kisses
whispered in my ear

In the silence of the night
when only I can hear.

"I love you."
