Flames of Love

The after glow of a steady burn,

As embers dim, stoking I yearn,

Memories of nights set aflame,

Smiling fondly, I’m sure you’re the same.

I’ll never forget, what you give,

I hope you know, it’s for you I live,

It’s only you that lights my eyes,

It’s only you I need by my side.

So now I wait, as you, so patiently,

Waiting for our flames, again set free,

Then we’ll lie together, side by side,

To see the flames of love reflected in gazing eyes.

There are days

There are days when we miss each other.

There are days we somehow can’t connect.

There are days we both wish our lives would align.

There are days we can’t do what we both expect.

Those days seem to mock us, laugh at our plight.

Those days suck, they’re stealing us of precious time.

Those days drag, they are the longest grind.

Those days hurt cos I can’t be yours, or you mine.

There are days when we miss each other.

There are days we somehow can’t connect.

There are days we both wish our lives would align.

There are days that I wish that we were  wed. 

Almost within reach

Led in a bed, led all alone.

Led somewhere else, nowhere near home.

Wishing I had your company, wishing I were with you.

Wishing we were snuggled, wishing I weren’t so blue.

So I guess I’ll get up, I’ll get showered, I’ll get dressed.

I’ll take a walk in the sun, I’ll do my very best.

To take in the beauty of life, of life here near the beach.

And I’ll try to forget, that you and I are almost within reach.

As if

The moment that’s meant to last
A purpose to you and me
Hearts wrapped in a cast
Setting the breaks
Those longing aches…
Our smiles that refuse to fade
Air kisses, phone-blown
And we swim, we wade
In this gooey-love we both made
Spending our days, our lives
As if they will never end
As if we will never end

darkest days and nights

On the darkest days and nights,

I think of you.

I smile, I cry,

Both are true.

For love at arms length,

Isn’t a hard trial.

But coping with the need,

Can truly be vile.

Our minds have too much time,

Thinking the worst.

Lashing out at nothing,

The bubble nearly bursts.

Then it happens,

The epiphany of truth,

Then it happens,

I remember you.

All calms,

Fears ebb away.

And I thank you my Beauty,

For your love on those days.
