I look up into your blue eyes

And my heart skips a beat

A smile slowly forms on your lips

I feel like a teenager again

Experiencing love for the first time

I bask in the warmth of your touch

As we fall into an embrace

Heartbeats joining in sync

We are one for the moment

Just the first of many to come

You Saved The Day

Photo by Dids on

Today again I needed help

But was afraid to turn to you

Same old story of pain and sadness

Chilled me to the bone

Why should I burden you

With what I can’t control

I fought the day all by myself

As I so often do

Closing off all contact

And let my problems stew

Then when I felt I wasn’t a threat

I finally reached out to you

Your words fit like a warm embrace

They left me with new hope

I never should have doubted you

You really lift me up

Now once again I feel my dreams

Might one day have a chance

Love’s Embrace

he whispered her name
she shivered in response
he softly touched her cheek
she let out a sigh
he kissed her lips
she kissed him back
he embraced her body
she took a deep breath
he moved his hand down her back
she let out a moan
…it was a personal moment
shared with each other
loves embrace on a rainy day
