The Best of Each

by Michael Auguste


At night we talked beneath the stars
And listened to train whistles blow
While crickets in the darkness chirped
Too soon, it seemed, she had to go

That dew could trap her laughter's ring
Would be my hope if it were true
And hold her voice that I might hear
So once again we might be two

I still remember her sweet touch
And how we held each other tight
How we both dared the sun to rise
To steal from us this starry night

While passion rose to find its place
I kissed her eyes, then sought her lips
I felt the blush rise to her face
As I placed hands upon her hips

But all too soon she had to leave
There really was no other way
I went inside and sat awhile
Discovered that it now was day

Sometimes two hearts can beat in sync
And fate can often be unfair
But still we have the best of each
The honest, tender words we share

(sigh) Yes, sometimes love can have it's unfortunate and times of sorrow, but the sweet memoriesa and blessings will always leave our hearts to sing in rapture. May true love forever flourish in your heart! You have such a beautiful heart, dear friend, thank you for sharing!

May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Lovingly written yet containing a longing and some regret. I dare the heart to meet these words, and not find similar feelings. A very universal write.

Greeneyes,

When the person you are writing about is real, the words come easily. I do so appreciate you nice words, sweet friend. Thank you.
