He lays in bed in peaceful sleep…
She carefully settles herself beside him,
so as not to disrupt the calm he rightfully needs,
and softly presses her lips on his shoulder
embedding the secret of a lingering love
through a promise she has yet to break.
He’s probably miles away in his dream now
together with the gentle waves
of every sea he has relished,
the sun in its descent
in its surrender to the dark,
amid echoes uttering verses
from the most remarkable minds he has known.
The color and depth of his thoughts
would kiss her in moments of wakefulness
assuring her of the presence she yearns for
inside a world she’s come to embrace.
Beyond comparison with anyone else
she continues to cherish him
with his meaningful freeways, skies and metaphors.
The beauty of words keeps its wrap around them
even though they both knew
they’d never find their home
against space and time.
