Not Flowers

I still remember the way you looked on the beach 

Wind blowing in your face 

The moon casting its brightened rays upon you 

You looked so beautiful 

I wish I could have stayed there on that beach forever 

But, the sun would have risen on our peaceful night 

And with it would have brought the hordes of tourists 

Beach towels in hand 

So I’m looking forward to every day 

Balancing one on top of one another 

And then summed into another year 

Know that I am and always will be entirely yours 

But not flowers, nor chocolates, nor any amount of words can capture this feeling 

Of being locked inside our own embrace 

Each dreaming of the other, but lost to the rest of the world 

And it’s a brand new dawn that shines upon my face 

That awakens me to the smell of you 

And I know, you mean everything to me 

And I still remember how you looked at me 

The first time I said, “I love you.” 

Oh, how your bright eyes shined 

And danced and gleamed 

Capturing every bit of light 

Refracting every inch of my being 

‘Cause somehow I know 

You really mean the meaning 

Behind those words: 

“….I love you...” 

So I’m looking for these words to say 

But none come to my tongue 

Because you are my only love in life 

So know that I am and always will be entirely yours 

But not flowers, nor chocolates, nor any amount of words can capture this feeling 

Writing this is like a long maze 

So I’ll leave with a, “farewell” 

And a, “I will see you soon.” 

Because I’ll always remember the way you looked 

That night out on the beach, 

That night under the moon
