I remember you. My childhood friend the one who rode the roundabout with me. Where have you gone? My long lost friend I close my eyes and still see you twirling.
Days under the sun another night next to you who could ask for more?
I can’t remember a time when there was just me. I am not alone. Can you remember a time when there was just you? We are like braided hair. When we look out o’er the lake there’s no horizon. Blue hues merge as one.
Your hair is the softest noun. Your eyes the bluest adjective. Your curves an exclamation point! You are the direct object of my heart. Your kiss is the adverb that modifies my love. When you walk into the room everyone else becomes a pronoun.
Sneak away with me in the middle of the night while the world is sleeping. Lace up your skates leave your cares behind under the starry lights. Hands joined and we glide effortless and laughing as we circle around the moon. Morning breaks our fantasy until the next time we go night skating.
Bright and new each moment your smile like the sun over the pristine snow. Every snowflake as unique as our memories together illuminated by your proximity.
Waves crash about always in a hurry. Destroying themselves on the sandy shore. Sometimes I wonder why the urgency? We'll get there eventually let's enjoy the riptide.
Under the street light you whispered to me a secret everyone already knew. With a resolute smile our hands inseparable we face the darkness together.
What were you looking for down on the river banks? Did you find your youth buried in the earth? Was there any wisdom to be learned from the cottonwoods? Did you settle the score with yourself amongst the reeds? What was the reason the clouds were in the water?
Valentine's day by the falls cool mist on our toes our feet glisten in the afternoon sun. Our fingers mesh flirtatiously with clasped palms a kiss unexpected yet welcome. A warm smile over your shoulder a playful wink and we walk along past Valentine's Day.
