Your eyes have kissed the sky
and there is noway
Im going to hide from you
this time.

Open the book
turn a page
there in parchment
a picture of you and I
our smiles
seeds planted in the earth,
our hands are pressed together
palms touching
submission perhaps
permission perhaps
to be as one for once.

I marvel at the feel
of you against me
light as snow on my lashes,
you lay on my eyes
and tell me all the world.

The book closes,
but there you are
for real
strolling in the middle distance,
and I love the way you move.

I reach out
across time
space
and find the place
where I can stand beside you.
I run your hair through my hands
it glides like woven strands,
and you are falling sunlight
on me.

I'll never hold you forever,
and its ok
if I dont think about it too much
as the dusk demands the day away,
I'll take the time I have you
and thank each word we share,
each smile we give,
and you know I love you
dont you.

You start to exit my sight,
but I cannot complain
you touched me
and Im never going to be the same.

Fool~
These are beautiful thoughts !

'our hands are pressed together
palms touching
submission perhaps
permission perhaps
to be as one for once.'

Greatly enjoyed the movement of your words.

Just wanted to let you know that this is one of my favorites here.  I am going to keep this one.  You have done remarkable here.  Your words ring so true for my life too.  Thanks!

~Fool,...I actually feel a bit strange addressing you that way, but this is so beautifully written.  I am glad that I found it here as it is a treasure. *Take care.
