The muted waves lap alongside the wooden hulls In their rhythm, my heart beats in tune with yours I hear a gulls song off in the distance, hugging the land The haunting cries echo my lonely cries to you Another misty night gathers around my skin And I breathe it in, wanting it to fill this longing inside With each breath, I draw you, draw the sun, a little closer I long to be cloaked by your body, warmed by your light As the moon surrenders, losing her fight And I am risen in your sun
Tyson...thanks for being my light and my inspiration

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Very beautiful Hoot, especially like "Another misty night gathers around my skin And I breathe it in, wanting it to fill this longing inside With each breath, I draw you, draw the sun, a little closer I long to be cloaked by your body, warmed by your light" WOnderful imagery!

Ruth, I finally have a chance to reply to our poem here. This is my favorite of ours to date. And it came so quickly and easily. Thanks for always complimenting my lines perfectly, every time. Take care until this morning when we talk.
Pepper, WhtDove, Rainbowgirl, Christopher, Alwye, Severn, Beki, Dark Angel, Thank you all for you replies. Very much appreciated by us both. Thanks again. Tyson
