To love and to live

How enticing to see the sun in the sky and you by my side. As I think of the touch of your hand slightly on my lip, I quiver of delight and smile of defeat, for your love rules my soul and my heart, everything. Saddened I'm not, important to state, to cease being the master of me, as people would say. It all surrenders to this: It is just wonderful to see, to feel, to love and to live.
