Eureka! (a third Valentine offering)

Eureka! I found you!
You are not in some silly old house where nothing hangs but a sad painting
Or a dry, cold bank where you touch the bills with such delicate fingers
You are not in Mcdonald's, where I sat for moments waiting
Or at my home where your scent lingers
You're just in one place I am happy with
Tucked in a labyrinth of tangled giddy
That sort of place where I put all my pillows, the softest yet
And listen to nightingales dreamily chirping their refrains
I hope that the air conjoins with the mist in achieving your lightest breath
And even melt the overlaying sleet
Eureka! Eureka! My dearest one
You're here, you're here
Away from sight
But in my only heart.
