Force of Attraction

Why is it that I feel this earthly pull

Whenever I draw close enough to you?

The warm within your eyes will feed me full.

I know that this connection must be true.

But gravity, the one force that attracts,

Is far too strong for us to feel its power.

How can it be that you this power lack,

And yet I feel it as we spend each hour?

I long to long myself in your embrace,

Like magnets pulled from distant lengths away.

To feel the sun that shines upon your face-

But why this force exists, I cannot say.

Perhaps this string, when plucked, will vibrate true.

Our souls were bound when first my eyes saw you.
