Lets write a poem together ...verse by verse

    I watched as the sherbet colored clouds slow
    drift across the sky and the memories  of our embrace
    and realized that you were really gone this time
    and gone are your hands your arms your face

      Love put you in a place within my heart of hearts.
      Within I reach my hand and hold you in my palm.
      Our souls ever entwined spiritually we speak,
      communicating goodness, fullness, and peace.

    Its winter and wet and yet I think of spring.
    A tune as light as a butterfly's wing floats within.
    It flows through me and why contain it?
    For it is yours and mine and all who hear it.

    And yet who wins in love  and who loses too
    but each and all involved
    Or who was the most invested and who the least
    is  this all but to  be dissolved

    A puzzle came together slow;
    The last piece pushed into place
    Revealed an image so beautiful,
    It laid all doubts to rest.

    And I knew at once all  pieces  of you as a  puzzle
    become a mystery  and the mystery a song
    yet the song held a melody of long ago
    like one that you sang as I sang along

    With the roars of rushing waters...
    Loud sounds of changing tides...
    Into a distinctive atmosphere...singing.
    Mysteries untold we are holding.

    And the best mysteries are mysteries of you and it
    is you who keeps them  that way
    For I was a wanderer towards  love mysterious  and you
    who showed me  how to stay

      The whoosh of changing tide
      In a quiet bay
      Is deep and enduring
      For ships
      Happily sailing.

        Your soul set sail
        I thank the tide was right
        To cross this bay by night
        Destiny won't fail us.

    Gone are the winds and the crashing of waves ...
    Gone are the shadows of eerie moon rays.
    Back are the seagulls flying over the shore,
    Above the waves as they quietly roll.

    Skies' colorful spectrums --
    Your face
    Your arms
    Embrace.

      I see you sitting, outside on the stairs ...
      In the soft sunlight, the breeze in your hair.
      Looking ahead what do you see?
      Somehow I know, you're thinking of me.

        It was then that I reached  a hand to
        touch your brow
        together  we watched  the sun set with
        not a word to show
        not but quiet calm

          Your meek and quiet spirit
          I seek touching mine.

            A feeling oh so subtle
            Yet also, so divine.

            Our meek and quiet spirits
            In uninterrupted bliss
            Is what I want for ever ...
            The world I will never miss.

    Only when the tide stops running  an ebbing
    begins and her heart  slowly calms
    But I know well the nervous soul of this woman
    and have no unsettling  qualms

    And so her heart stops and begins  again
    her mind though never rests
    If only I could take the woman's hand
    give her peace  and all my best

    If only I could hug her
    Until she takes a breath ...
    I could help relieve her 
    Of all that's causing stress!

    But, like a frog she'll jump up
    With restless words for me ...
    Ignoring those I utter
    In peace and harmony.

    Someday in the winter,
    When the winds howl cold …
    She'll wish that she had reached out
    To grasp my hand to hold.

    But suddenly she shuddered,
    Laid her head on my shoulder ...
    And gazed into my eyes
    For a kiss.

    Then the sun slipped away,
    And the sherbet sky turned gray ...
    As we melted into
    Our bliss.

    … well, until one of their their cell phones rang. lol

    The End.
