You Have Become....Sicilian Sonnet

You have become a presence in my mind.
I do not like it, for no longer is my mind free
Instead, my waking time is taken up with thee
My thoughts once controlled and simple kind
Now wander off in space, to leave me blind
And think of things that I would like to be
Of the future, of love and of you and me
The way our souls around each other wind.
In my minds eye I can see you everywhere
Each waking moment you steal my time
In thoughts so different to what was there
Now it is so natural to think that I’m
Thinking about someone for who I care
Someone to me who’s made my life sublime.
