You are the essence of the rainbow after rain
You own the lips I need next to me at night
you’re the lasting perfume in the room
the sweetest of the girls I knew
And when the egress opens
and you walk out the door
I sense a sentiment I never felt before.
And when the ingress moves
and sunlight can be seen
I know my wait is almost over
a new day nearly dawned
we talk, and chuckle
laugh, cajole, and fawn.
Brown hair swishing in the breeze
eyes on mine that say so much
head on shoulder, resting kind –
gentle to the touch.
Loving thoughts, there’s no tomorrow
no beginning and no end
lucky to have found another
soft and tender, beating when
my heart beats, my love, my sweet
together, one, apart unheard
not to take your world away
it’s my world now –
don’t say a word.
