I Do Really Like You (Free Verse Sonnet)

(for Annelize)

I like the way that you do fit in under my arm,
of how easily I can embrace you
without you clinging to me,
how perfectly you do fit into my hands
of your words with never a maybe,
of the things with which you do me trust,
of the smile with which you do look upon life
but your image remains with me of how it had once been,
your sunny eyes that suddenly do come after days of rain,
where you are secretive like the twilight
but it comes with day and night in between,
you are beautiful like wild flowers that suddenly appear,
your humanity like the sun that brings a light to the darkness
and every day starts like a brand new tomorrow with you.
