Sitting in a sunbeam on the cool kitchen floor,
watching the sunset thru the open back door.
Soft breezes come in thru the tattered screen,
God's artistry paints the sky in a violet washed scene.
The stereo jams ... my body takes in the deep base,
the sunlight warms and tans my tear streaked face.
Within this fragile moment ... I discover the place, you exist in me.
The gift of this miracle ... for once, I am content to simply ... just be.
If I hold my breath ... can I make time mercifully stand still ...
Should I never move ... can I stop the arrival of until...
*for my partner in rhyme
thank you for the inspiration, always.
The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
