Meet Me In Naples

We strolled hand in hand
along Naples cobbled streets
beneath nearly blown- off linen sheets
Hanging  from old  balconies.

Street musicians played their bagpipes
In this southern bustling city
where the crowd will never sleep.

Blessed by silent moments
in Duomo di San Gennaro
I knelt down on my knees
Prayed for health ,and for serenity
For strangers ,and for loved ones
who shared different beliefs.

At Da Michele pizza parlour
We shared pizza bites and laughter
Savoured different flavours, of pepperoni
King prawns and provolone cheese.
Fresh oregano filled the air with its pungent smell 
on that once upon a summer breeze.

At Sunset,far from gothic abbeys we wandered
Through alleys walked,our lips touched and kissed
Next  to lit antique street lamps 
Our vacant eyes met,these hearts have been blissed.

A romantic getaway to Naples
New memories in making
Close to Michelangelo's masterpiece
Unveiling virtues and sins,without verdict
Creating  on  life's canvas, our oil -painting.

Sitting at the edge of the city
Facing the mediterranean sea
Its there where I see you
 Arms wrapped around me
Gazing in distance
Watching the last boat 
set sails to be free.

Tonight, like many other nights
Its there where I hear you
Soft whisper of a thousand melodies
Tonight, It is there where I'll find you
Oncemore in my dreams.
