I find myself thinking of you in the quiet and stillness
Of a fresh, new morning as I sink into the mattress of a still-warm bed.
My thoughts hover and flitter like the humming bird outside my window
And I drink them in along with the lingering smell of you on my pillow.
I recall our talk of the possibility of forever and the journey to get there
As I acknowledge how our bodies fit together like
An old glove and a worn baseball, stitches fraying, pitches swaying
Like the waves of the ocean, the sea, the same blue-green water
That fills the circles in your eyes, which I fall into and swim in,
Drown in, feeling overwhelmingly at home, at ease and like
A Sailor taken from the sea still feels the ocean rolling beneath him,
I feel you in the warmth of the sheets, the indents in the bed,
The strands of my hair which you painted strokes of affection in
Last night as you ran your fingers through it and I long for
And crave your touch, your lips, the same lips that write lines
Of poetry on mine while we kiss, embrace, and I look upon
Your face in all its glory and radiance, and realize that your smile
Is contagious and the laughter from my mouth is the effect
Of the cause of you placing your hand on my side, now
My breast, my heart against your chest and we drown in the love
Of two friends, lovers, sensationalists, and we urge our bodies together
And lead then follow, dancing the salsa, the tango
Vertically then horizontally, now passionately we break
Open our minds and hearts and fall, head-first
Thousands of feet through the air as we jump from a plane
Flying down the isle at our wedding, while you wear a
Blue tie to make your eyes pop and I hold a bouquet of
White roses to match my white dress and we powerfully say:
