The sun disappears under a blanket of clouded hues
Stars begin to shine, like scattered fireflies,
Against the deep blanket of night
All is calm...
Nestled safe in your arms
A sense of quiet peace surrounds us
The moon rises and glows in silent cascades
Gently the breeze sweeps us away, to thoughts of serenity
Warm and safe, we linger in thought
Smell the sweet scent of dew
Back and forth we still sway
Through the creaking of boards, I drift off to dreams
That moment is transfixed in my mind
Untarnished by the changing years
The chair worn, but still here
Feeling your spirit surround me
Brings back memories...
You and I in the open air,
On the rocking chair that outlasted time
