I await your warm embrace

fields
of memories glean
and, the water tower
sits at the center
of a love that is greater

than
what we purported
to know, as the grass
grows taller, and we stay
a little while longer

sitting
in each other’s
presence, while the birds
among the trees
sing love songs
to each other, called forever

and
a moment
together, is worth more
than all the gold
laid down
inside the rock
a millennia ago

when last
there was a time
that stopped

stood still

just like,
my heart
when you’re near

close
enough
to feel you’re
presence on my face

breathing
and whispering
something
into outer space,
as I await
your warm embrace

Forgiven

A tender embrace,
Is a special place
For you and me.

I remember the
First time,
Like it was the last time,

Even when I couldn’t see.

Yet, feeling disjointed,
And all the while
Mispointed,

Falling into your arms,
Was something else completely.

A touch so soft, and
At the same time bold,
It never occurred to me
How together, we’d grow old.

I was once told
A tale of togetherness,
Which foretold of all kinds
Of pleasantness,

The likes of which remind
Me of the times amiss,
When hugs were
Given, as both
Of our hearts
Were

Forgiven.
