Tropic Fantasy

Listen to poem:
I catch myself with thoughts of us standing by the shore Feeling so content with life and never wanting more Battles of our former lives grow distantly behind With gentle waves of tranquil peace as all that's left to find I look into those crystal eyes of tropic ocean blue Finding myself thankful I could have this time with you Then you smile as if you know exactly how I'm feeling Seems as though I just can't hide the words I've been concealing When you reach your hand for mine in such a tender way Soon our fingers intertwine as if they're there to stay Slowly you lean in to me and sweetly beg a kiss Then we share a moment I would rather die than miss With lips so soft we gently touch and I can't help but smile Every tear I've cried to here It's made it all worth while Floating on the ocean breeze we linger in the feeling Sensing how the magic licks the wounds that we've been healing Then we begin to walk along malingering around Feeling sand between our toes and ten feet off the ground Soon the time will bring about the setting of the sun When we begin an evening where the Sparks have just begun Watching how the firelight glows dancing in your eyes 'neath the twinkling stars across our moonlit tropic skies As if a spell were slowly cast that ended in surrender Our evening would be spent enjoying all of passions splendor I lay awake and think about us laying on the shore Tangled in each others arms and never wanting more Should my tropic fantasy soon be a dream come true I'll know your love was real for me as mine was real for you -Jeannie Minor
