Every Detail...

Since I met you,
I've floated on invisible clouds,
and I'm taking in more details.
I've started noticing
the little things I missed before,
like the way the air smells
after the rain
and how a sky full of stars
can refuel lost dreams.
I've started thinking about
my hairstyle, and I find myself
staring at the mirror
and taking in my measure.
I'm wondering what it sounds like
when I laugh,
and whether I call your name
in my sleep.
I'm more critical of myself
and the way I live my life.
Suddenly, I have a
desire to kick off all
of my bad habits,
and don a new me.
I'm thinking about
life on a deeper level,
rethinking my values
and priorities.
And I'm wondering if my heart
is as warm as the clerk's
at the Dollar Store
who calls everyone, "honey,"
and if I could ever be
as unselfish and giving as you are.
I want to become a better person
in every way imaginable,
because you deserve the best.
And I want to fill up
every hole life has ever
put in your heart,
and give you something
to look forward to
during the winter
of our lives.
