The love of my life

you are the eighth, seventh
sixth and fifth
forth, third
second and first
wonder of the world
the deep colour of your eyes
the folding up of your glasses
ruffled strands of your hair
the weight of your hands
penetrating stare
that at once commands me
your inner child somewhere there
something churlish, daring.
