Beloved, You Are

Your are in my thoughts,
You are present in my deeds.

You are the breeze I feel.
You are the perfumes carried to me.

I need you.
You are my essence.
You complete me.

Ahhh.. Yes… I remember writing this for my beloved.  I had taken
a walk at lunchtime.   Eucalyptus trees lined the road.  The air was
perfumed with the smell of eucalyptus.  There was a light breeze
carrying the sounds of the leaves clicking against each other and
the tree’s perfume. Walking around the buildings was a good way to
escape from the office and telephone calls.  It was a way to let my
mind wander.  These words came to me as I walked along the path
and the breeze brought me the eucalyptus perfume.  

Reading them again today I can smell the eucalyptus and feel the breeze.
The words bring the memory of the words and devotion alive all
over again.
