With the Entirety of Me...


My heart has beaten billions of times before I met you

But it beats a different beat now

It beats in unison with yours

When you exhale, I inhale

When I exhale, you inhale

When you smile, it is my lips that turn upward

When you cry, I feel your tears run down my cheek

When you open your eyes in the morning, it is me who awakens

When you close your eyes at night, it is me who dreams

We are one heartbeat

One body

One soul

I love you with the entirety of me

With all that I am

With all that I've ever been

And with all that I could ever hope to be...

  1. Hello:

    This is a most touching poem and one which expresses a very real feeling, indeed that of profound love from one person to another.

Gosh, I'm so blessed, so lucky, and so deeply in love with you <3 Our hearts beat as one because our souls are one. We have found what we've been looking for all of our lives and I promise you I will cherish us the rest of forever. You make me feel loved like I never thought possible, you make me happy, you make me smile and you let me be everything I ever wanted to be. I love you, with all that I am for everything that you are! Your fiancée :)

  16. Hey that's so romantic. One of my favorite poem for you and Beate by Rumi.
    "I saw you and became empty.
    This emptiness, more beautiful than existence,
    It obliterates existence, and yet when it comes, Existence thrives and creates more existence" .... :)

  41. Reminds me of Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII

    "I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
    I love you without problems or pride:
    I love you like this because I don't know any other way to love,
    Except in this form in which I am not not are you,
    So close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
    So close that your eyes close with my dreams."

  105. Ah Keith, poetic for sure - you have gift with expression and words, but the content is real and true and heart-felt.
    Even for someone with a gift for eloquent writing it is difficult to pen all of the emotion wrapped in your heart.
