In your arms, time freezes:
Constant in its eternal rhythm,
yet ceasing to exist
for the span of that single heartbeat.

And for the briefest instant,
my entire world completely converges
to include you
and only you.

In that moment,
you are my everything.

You smile down at me, your blue eyes crinkling,
and that small secret moment alights,
smoothly followed by the next instant in time.

Yet though it is forever gone, our moment,
in its wake I am filled
with the most complete happiness
I have ever known.

For within my heart, there is the deepest sense
of recognition and
of joy:
Finally, I have found you.
