Shadow

The wind blowing through your 
hair, 
Hits my face from the same 
direction.
I brush the hair out of my eyes 
So I can keep them on you.
You're so beautiful to me.
I can see your lips moving, 
But I can't make out what you are 
singing. 
Do you know your nose twitches 
before you giggle? 
I could look at you all day! 
I am stunned….
Mesmerised by you.
The sun is slowly collapsing over the 
horizon, 
The bare trees cast long shadows 
like tall men,
A chill passes through me, 
And you pull your cardigan closed to 
stay warm.
It's time to go home.
We keep walking through the end of 
today, 
Past the pools of yesterdays swim, 
Past the grocery store where you 
bought movie snacks, 
And I watched silently.
You stop to pick a plum from the 
tree of old Mrs Beckett.
Your nose wrinkles, and you giggle 
with your first bite
You are a delight.
I notice my step has matched 
yours…
Left after right, in time with my 
heart.
There it is…..home.
You take your key from your 
pocket, 
And I watch as you let yourself 
inside.

I turn and walk away.

You have taken another long 
romantic walk, 
That only one of us knows about.

See you tomorrow.
