Words cannot express the emotion with which I feel. Tirelessly considering, the joy of childhood. The love of parents so happy for me. A coffee sits. Begging to be sipped. While I stare at our old oak tree. The yard as square and cut as dad kept it all those years. Mom's aged cook book, a family classic on the shelf. Stares at me through dusty binding. Years have passed. Alone I tend to my history. The coffee is getting cold.
At times, lost. Momentary lapses. Blurry memories. Happy thoughts. Dreams. Dancing latte swirls. Life. Lived one day. One moment. Daily existence. Cloudy with a chance. Of beauty. I love you not because. I love you not since I should. I love you, because it's you.
You left without warning. Gone, instantly. The door was barely closed. What was once us, is not just me. I'm sorry if I hurt you. What pain I caused. That wasn't me. Or maybe it was. I hope you forgive. I hope you love again. If nothing else, for me.
Cloudy. With a chance of love. You smiled. I smiled. Our hearts light. One day you said hello. I stumbled with my words. In love instantly. It was cloudy. But your heart, shone through.
Like stars above. Your eyes remind me. So Sinatra crooned. Love always. Eternally heartfelt. Cascading over me. On bended knee. I'll wait. Time is nothing. Moments until you come. Like pennies in my pocket. Love me. Please. A beggar for romance. I will always be.
Sunlit. Your smile. That time in the kitchen. When the glass broke. Scared. Hurt. I thought you were. You smiled. Laughed embarrassed. Momentarily tender. My machismo broken. But for a moment. My heart you saw. My love for you. Laid bare. Embraced. Two hearts forever. Linked as one. Nothing as precious. Special. Us.
How do I tell you. Feelings. Ufettered. The wreckage of a soul. Eternal love. Undying. How do I tell you. When I see. When our hearts speak again. Memories. Those little moments. Infinite. Pure. The thing we all seek. It was you. It's always been us. How do I tell you. Tell me. Please.
