Love

a poem by Amit

How do I describe a love
   That has no roots in reality?
How do I define a need
   That has no basis in experience?
I see you in my dreams
   Both waking and sleeping.
I close my eyes and Flashes of your smile
   Dashes of your eyes Color my imagination.
I shut my ears to noise and
   Bits of your voice Snips of your laughter
   Water my day dreams.
I see it in your eyes When we meet
   You assess me And smile.
Perhaps one day Not so far away
   I will look at you With all your charm
And tell you openly
   That it is your future
   You see waiting in my eyes.
