Fireworks in the Dark

The sounds of explosions startle my heart
Deafening booms in my ears
But its worth it to be sitting here with you
Colorful explosions intermingle
Your hand reaches mine and i find our hands intertwining
Its a dance they do to the beat of the booms
Fireworks in the dark
It is all so very magical
But will it last through the night
This long yet short lived day has flown away
Your breath tickles my neck
as you lean in to say your good-byes
I had been so lost in the thought of tomorrow that i forgot about today
Now its over and there you are leaving
You take my hand one last time
You come near as you whisper in my ear
We'll always have fireworks in the dark
I smile as we part
I now know that this is just the start

    The start of something new, just love it! The anticipation and the not knowing but being willing to take that step is awesome Chrissy :) rgds Wilma
