With you

I can't help but watch you.
All that you do, leads me astray,
As long as I'm with you.

All that I know is true,
Is that no matter what you say,
I can't help but watch you.

As I follow, "Where to?"
While step by step, as you delay,
As long as I'm with you.

Your voice, leading me through
This lonely path on which we stay,
I can't help but watch you.

Still walking, wind blows through
Our hair, silence fills the air. Hey,
As long as I'm with you.

Maybe, when sky is blue
Day starts anew, perhaps I'll say,
I can't help but watch you.
As long as I'm with you.

I think you should try a little harder on the title, as "I love You" is getting to be a cliche. maybe something like; "Being Near You" or even, "Near You" . the theme is repetitive, without giving any new information. there is potential here, for a decent poem. take your time and work on it. good start.

You put your feelings out there. I think you could redo the title. I have problems with coming up with titles too. But all in all, your poem was good. Keep putting your feelings into it and the words will flow. Thanks for sharing. Love and light. Namaste.

Love and light. Namaste.
