just like juliet

it's morning again;
i watched the sun yawn across the sky
making its way to my window
but the stars were still in your eyes
and last night's dew, still fresh
as i laid in your arms wanting more
wanting anything but a new day.

i always hated good-byes;
arms locked tightly around one another
lips pressing firmly while tired tongues whispered
"i love you" over and over again
but the hands of time never held still
and we'd start to part, then repeat the process
over and over again holding what we could from night
but day always dressed us
moved us along
left us standing alone.

i saw lover's leap;
it was this big rocky cliff
jutting out of the side of a mountain
and i settled deep in my own thoughts,

i'd like to climb it,
before sunrise,
when the stars are still fresh in your eyes
and the dew still wet between us,

kiss you,
close my eyes 
and whisper "i love you"
over and over again
without having to say good-bye.

    I read this again and if it is possible it seems even more beautiful today. Perhaps it is because I can see you more clearly. You have been given a rare gift. Thanks for sharing it with us. I have moved this to my favorites.
