A Stranger And My Best Friend

I see a spark in you're smile,
And stars in you're eyes.

I hear a melody in you're voice,
A guiding light in you're words.

I feel a sense of rightness in you're presence,
An electric current in you're touch.

I can smell your sweet scent in your absence,
A lingering reminder of all that you are.

You're simply someone I'd hate to forget,
An open book and a mystery all the same.

You're a stranger and my best friend.


  1. I love the verse stating I can smell your sweet scent in your absence / A lingering reminder of all that you are. These two lines speak to me. Beautiful!

  2. I love the sweetness and the new memories that are forming

    I'm RTing my dear

  3. With a few simple words, you say so much.
    Very nice. :)

  4. You're moving in the direction of someone who is really starting to love life....YES!!!

  5. You have evoked memories... Light glints from a tear falling past a pensive smile. You write beautifully. :) x
