"The Answer" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on February 23, 2014

"The Answer"

To the question

I keep asking

In your glow

You'll find me basking

In the morning light

Enchanted by thee immediate thought of you

I wake with your image burned in my brain, seems no matter what I do

Wishing for a dream lover I was

Up all night


A shining star shot across my sky

Leaving me


Questioning, how is it?

A creature exists, so exquisite

For you see, I saw you but didn't know what to do

Frozen in my tracks, a deer in headlights, mesmerized by the view

Questioning, how is it?

Fate opens a door that's too good to be true

Questioning, how is it?

Through all my years a beauty like this I never knew

Questioning, how is it?

All this time I never even had a clue

Questioning, how is it?

That I never knew the answer I was looking for was you

      How good can a done deal be?! and to know it!

      ..."The Answer" right on title for this one.

      Keep on.... and don't let go of that beach-side core:

      You are a rip tide poet with hand held to the heartbeat of water colored words; confining your audience to gently tides of beauty in this one.
