The wind blowing through your
Hits my face from the same
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
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
The bare trees cast long shadows
like tall men,
A chill passes through me,
And you pull your cardigan closed to
It's time to go home.
We keep walking through the end of
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
Left after right, in time with my
There it is…..home.
You take your key from your
And I watch as you let yourself
I turn and walk away.
You have taken another long
That only one of us knows about.
See you tomorrow.
