You are My World, (update)

The poem in the left column (this column) is the more polished poem, the poem on the right hand column was what I started with.


When I look at you 
I see my world:

I know the dimple
on your cheek
was made from God’s temple.

I know all your laughs
like the sound of your voice –
You can’t split this love for you in halves

I know what will make
everything okay and what keeps you safe,
and with God’s protection he won’t forsake. 

I know at night
when I comb your hair,
your royalty is more bright
then your glowing night-light.

When I look at you
I see all of the miracles 
in you, with your soul 
and spirit from the heavens. 

I know your favorite
lullaby by heart –
each and every word, 
and every loving part.

Without you I wouldn’t
know how to find me
because you are the key
to all of me.

When I look at you
I see my world:

I know for instance
that only when you
are truly happy, your

dimple shows, I know
your laugh as well
as your tone of voice.

I know what will
make everything
for the moment

at least, okay.
I know at night
when I braid your

hair, how each
strand represents
the princess in you

and yet, the length
of miracles in you.
I know your favorite

lullaby by heart.
As far as the rest,
like the unknown

places I have heard
of, yet to travel,
is what the currency

would be without
you. I know that I
wouldn’t know

where to take us
for picnics or tea, or
the best spot

would be to feed
the birds. I wouldn’t
know where to

connect the old
me with the new
you, because that

is foreign, overseas
travel and I only
fly domestically.
