Valentine Poem to Wife

The Way You Make Me Feel Poem

This poem was written with my wife in mind, as a Valentine's Day gift to her. We have been married for 23 years, and our love seems to get stronger every day. I know I would be utterly lost without her, she is my rock, my bond and my very soul.
I hope it can appeal to others, as I think it should be shared. If it is published, then hopefully some of my other poems will appeal too. It's a little hobby of mine, I'd like to share with anyone interested.

I can't talk to you without feeling honor,
I can't see you without feeling wonder,
I can't touch you without feeling pure,
I can't feel you without wanting more,
I can't hold you without feeling safe,
I can't kiss you without feeling great,
I can't miss you without feeling pain,
I can't meet you without wanting to again,
I can't watch you without feeling awe,
I can't love you without feeling loved,
I can't lay with you without feeling passion,
I can't stay away without feeling rationed,
I can't dream of you without sleeping soundly,
I can't cope without you around me,
I can't sleep without you in the bed,
I can't be alive without feeling your breath,
I can't think without you on my mind,
I can't leave without feeling unkind,
But most of all,
I can't exist without you in my life.

The only little part that is 'wrong' for my circumstances is the sleep line. It's everything that I want to & wish I could say without being prompted (I've suffered brain injuries; have a poor memory & can sleep anywhere at any time). That and I have to echo Brian Neil's comment!

Great poem, very touching, I read it to my wife, my high school sweetheart. I agree with everything in it but "I can't sleep without her in the bed!" either too small a bed or she's using too much of it. Thank you for sharing it made our Valentines day that much brighter.
