Sweet Rapture

In a loving embrace, a moment in time frozen
Etched in her mind as she wrapped loving arms around 
Drifting forever, in his tranquil eyes, blue as the sea
His shallow breath fell upon her beautiful face
His grasp clutched and this pulled her heart strings
As arms entwined the lovers echoed a sigh
Passion, emotions floating on a  sea of bliss
Rejoicing in sweet rapture, they kiss.

    Phyl, such emotion, I just didn't know where you were taking me and am sort of glad it stopped at the kiss! Anything might have happened but that would have been great. You show such restraint my dear and do a fine write on romance.
