writing love notes in the air

i close my eyes
and think of the way you smile when you look at me
softening the contours of your face
softening, my heart

the way i let you
hold me in your arms like a child
and i feel safe, comforted
and totally free

and the way
this love is blooming in me
and i so want to share it
but am afraid to say it

so i tell you
in kisses smiles and tender embraces
hoping you’ll notice
hoping you too might be

writing love notes in the air
