Part of Me

North Umpqua River, Douglas County, Oregon
The sun kissed my cheek, 
but it was your lips 
that touched me.

The breeze caressed my skin, 
but it was your arms 
that encircled me.

The scent of honeysuckle, 
is little compensation 
for the scent of your skin.

My eyes are closed, 
for your eyes are what 
I dream of.

I can feel your heartbeat 
under my fingertips
and hear it in my head.

With me.  
Within me.  
You are a part of me.

version of this. I liked it, so I decided to revise it for its
2022 debut. I hope you enjoy. ❤
