Visions

Written by: Michele Harrison

Visions of waves splashing in a beautiful blue sea

No one around, just us walking, you and me

The soft warm sand sliding between our feet

Our steps synchronized as if making a beat

Our hands join together because we are in love

You have on crisp linen as white as a dove

Your scent blowing in my nose, how I love that smell

You put your arms around me, look in my eyes and say, "I love you, Chele"

You make me melt like chocolate in one hundred degree weather

With you all weight is lifted, I'm as light as a feather

We continue walking down the beach, our voices sounding like a love song

We wish we could walk forever, because together is where we belong

But then reality hits me and a single tear drips down my cheek

As I remember the pain I felt at your funeral last week
