For what feels
Like an age
All my thoughts
Like dancing stars
In a burning rage.
In fiendish fright
I often dream
Of simply being
The two of us
Years have passed
Swallowed in reverie
A vision hums
Wedded to brightness
Drunk in lovers’ light.
We can only live in the moment
Forget past sorrows, dismiss ancient
Pains, look to tomorrow, smile.
Rise, dance, kiss your lover,
Create beauty, follow the sun.
Make love, sigh, revel in the wonder
Of it all. Now is now is now is now.
The past is a land of closed borders
Time to follow our natural orders.
The impulse burns bright, why crouch?
Stand tall, savour the music, the world
Alive with rich possibility, spinning,
A globe of gladness waiting to be caught.
We can only live in the moment,
For death’s date is coiled like a snake.
The strike can arrive anytime, unexpected,
Expected, a sudden surprise, a lingering
Event. So live the life you want, let your
Senses unfurl, a glorious canvas absorbing
New memories, the tenderness of touch, Secrets unlocked. Dance through the sorrow,
Unshed your baggage, travel light, walk
Onwards into a future, blossoming,
Some say there should be
No mysteries for two people
To love each other.
But isn’t there
Something luminous about
Spending a lifetime unveiling
These precious gems?
Like wayfarers charting
New paths, the dazzle
Is in the touching.
Time is so precious. Waste
It at your peril. Moments
Vanish in the blink of an eye.
Fly with the wind, love’s wings
Ring and ring. While we make
Sweet music, fragrance swells.
Bound by joyous fidelity,
Happy mingling incarnate.
When I see you again
let us not exchange words
but melt in a river of kisses
and revel like happy dogs.
