When the music ends

Sunset

Sunset

Your arms around me
hold me close
it doesn’t matter
what song is playing.

The evening breeze
through our hair
as we twirl
under jealous skies.

Our feet tangle
and stars collide
as the band plays
just one more tune.

The chorus stops
and the world halts
but I’m with you
when the music ends.

Unlikely places

Rec center and soccer fields

Rec center and soccer fields

It was the place
where we first met
I asked you out
and you said yes.

Strolling along
under summer sun
hand-in-hand
so care-free.

In soccer fields
our first kiss
then back home
before dinner.

Our love grows
in sidewalk cracks
it blooms in
unlikely places.
