You Breathe

November 19, 2007

Age 31 - Age 35, Love Poems

You breathe at night.
It makes me smile.
You sing to me,
And for a while,

My heart feels calm,
My feelings clear;
The world seems simple,
When you’re near.

– Written by Anna Williams at age 32

    People who can have the resonance after reading this poem must be happy since it is a feeling when people are companied by their lover. The lover can be spouse, child, relative, or friend.
