I Am Still

by

Jimetta Carpenter

 

I am still,

Standing here in a trance

Caught up in the very essence of you

Mesmerized and hypnotized, left breathless

Thinking of the things that you do.

I am still,

Trying to figure out how it is,

That you do what you do to me

Trying to understand how it is

That you became my hearts destiny.

I am still,

Trying to wrap my mind around how it is

I got so completely hooked on your love

Still trying to understand how I get so lost in your eyes

And in the way we fit together like a hand fits into a glove.

I still manage,

To fall more in love with you

Every single time I see your face

I still feel the chills being sent down my spine

Every time I come within your warm embrace.

I am still,

Wondering how I just knew it was right

And that I loved you  from the very start

Still trying to figure out how it is that you,

Were the one who captured the only key to open my heart.
