I heard my heartbeat get faster when you were near.
I heard your voice become music to my ears.
I heard my mind telling me that you’re the one.
The day you came into my life I heard an angel from above.
I heard love
The taste of your lips on mine left me craving more.
Sugar coated. Sweet and compelling, like honey.
Our lips touch, leaving a sweet taste in between.
I tasted your lips and I found my addiction.
My taste buds were dancing but no one saw.
I tasted your lips and I did not crave anyone else’s.
I tasted the sweet, sweet taste of love and passion.
I tasted you.
I felt your touch.
I felt my heart beating.
I felt my stomach releasing the caged butterflies.
I felt your deep and beautiful eyes look at me.
I felt lost in your gaze.
I felt love.
I saw your eyes. Oh my…
I saw your smile.
My eyes saw an angel that day.
Cupid appeared and shot us both.
I saw something gleaming in the light.
Love at first sight.
I smelled the fresh air. A new beginning.
I smelled your scent and maybe you smelled mine.
Maybe you smelled the coffee on my breath that night we kissed.
Oh, how much your presence is missed.
I smelled the magic of love, floating through the air.
I never thought love had a smell until I realized your smell
was something I loved to be near.
