I sit from afar watching as our lives slowly slip by,
From children to teens to adults.
You stand there with this look of absolute joy on your face.
Wondering to myself what your so happy about,
Blending into the sea of faces,
I disappear without a trace.
Years go by without you by my side,
It makes me wonder,
It makes me sad.
Without your words of wisdom,
I am lost in a world I cannot fathom.
The seasons are rapidly changing,
Fall to winter, to spring to summer.
Winter hangs in the air like a thick blanket engulfing my mind.
Emerging from a new challenge in life,
I spot you standing all alone.
Calling out your name you turn,
And start to walk towards me at a rapid pace.
My heart beat quickens,
Unable to breathe,
You take my breath away.
Grinning from ear to ear,
I take you in my arms for a long awaited hug.
You smell of sweet honey and the bitter aroma of coffee,
Mint chewing gum lodged in your mouth,
Winter-mint floods into my nostrils.
His familiar eyes lock me into a trance,
A trance of piercing blue water,
Rippling out into vast pools of blue ocean.
Lost in my own fantasy,
You bring me back into reality with a simple question:
“How are you?”
Talking for a while I realized I was staring at the man I love,
And that I have always loved,
And I always will.
We say our goodbye’s and promise to write to each other soon.
I start to leave and go about my day when suddenly He calls my name.
He grabs my hand and pulls me in close,
I can feel his warm breath upon my chilled nose.
He leans in.
My heart is pounding against my ribs,
I wonder if he can sense how nervous I am?
He kisses me.
Dancing on a cloud,
I am paralyzed with a wonderful drug I have waited for all of my life.
As soon as it came,
He turned and walked away.
What just happened?
He came into my life like a lightning bolt,
They never strike in the same spot twice.
Where does this leave us?
