You Have Touched My Soul


You have touched my soul

Your words sit eloquently within me

I am enamoured by what you say

You reach out, I respond

I am fortunate I know.


You have touched my soul

When I least expected it

What began in innocence?

Is now full of expectation

Hope, anticipation.


You have touched my soul

In ways never touched

Every utterance excites me

Beyond all measure

I live for you next word.


You have touched my soul

You have resurrected me

Given me purpose, intention

Shown me love as never before

I await your next affirmation.


You have touched my soul

Made plain to me your love

Made plans, dreams, of fun and games

Moments created we both long for

One day my love, one day.
