Sitting here beside you
As the sun softly fades
The light shines across you face, a
Beauty represented in all its shades
We come here every summer
Sit together and share our dreams
Then as the day disappears from sight
I sneak a kiss under the glowing beams
The water is tranquil, but I am not
My heart is full, it’s fit to burst
All these emotions whirling inside me
Just looking at you quenches my thirst
You are my morning and my night
Whether the sun is setting or on the rise
I’m happy to sit with you side by side
With our love lighting up the skies
Can we sit her just a little while longer?
Away from our busy lives and wonder
What comes next for us in the year ahead
And watching the sun until it finally goes under
This poem is in response to a photo prompt – Once More With Feeling #2
Poetry and I have a difficult relationship. I love it, and yet I’ve never mastered the art. I tell myself a writer can’t be good at everything – we all have our strengths, and still I strive to improve on this area of my work. So where I would normally have responded to the prompt with a short story, I stepped out of my comfort zone instead.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
