All That I Want

I catch my breath
And cherish the laughter
As we slowly embrace
Forever after

When I look down at you
I know one thing is certain
You're all that I want
And I'll say to you, then

When we embrace
I'll look into your eyes
And find that everything I missed
Is coming together now in my arms

You're my starry night sky
And my beautiful sunrise
More mysterious than the moon
I want to tell you
Just these three little words
Yeah, these silly little words
That don't mean a thing
Without knowing that it's true
But I know
This is true

Do 'ya know, girl
The things I'm thinkin' in my head?
Well I'll tell you
My thoughts revolve around 'n around 'n around

That moment
When I held tight
At the sunset
And when we kissed we knew it was right

'Cause you're my starry night sky
And my beautiful sunrise
More mysterious than the moon
I want to tell you
Just these three little words
Yeah, these silly little words
That don't mean a thing
Without knowing that it's true
But I know
Yeah, I know

You're all that I want, girl
And every night is our night
'Cause I know
I love you

I love these words, man! You make something so simple seem very complex and beautiful. Well done.

I'm wondering... are all of your poems about the same girl? If so, you're one lucky fellow.

Yep, they're all about the same girl. :) And I am, without a doubt, the luckiest guy alive.
