It’s the Slightest Things


The slightest golden glint

of sunlight in your hair,

and your playful loving touches

make me slightly more aware.


The bare essence of your beauty

is a need I want to crave.

Was that just an imagined glance

or the slightest grin you gave?


Your slightest carefree winsome smile

ensures my rich reward.

There’s every slightest loving memory

in our hearts, forever stored.


Intimate memories that embolden

and faithfully stir our slightest urge.

Two lives with hearts committed

that steadily, fatefully merge.


Without the slightest doubt

or any hesitation,

we dance to life’s rhythms

delighting in every fascination.


Now, with our happiness entwined

in absolute devotion,

these slightest, sweetest moments

intensify love’s intoxicating potion.


A Note From Chris

I wrote this poem almost 2 years ago and I must admit that I have done the “slightest”  little bit of a re-write on it!  It was one of my first attempts and I had a gut feeling that it could benefit from some more sweat and fret!  I am very happy with the changes and I hope you can find the “slightest” amount of time to read and enjoy!  I am posting this selection for d’Verse Poets Pub ~ Open Link Night ~ Week 47.
