A Beautiful Present

A beautiful present we were
Crafted in evening rain
And shattering beauty

A beautiful present we were
What a mystical time
You have filled me with

April magnolias, words of love,
African autumn tea
And fingertips touching verses in the remote library

A beautiful present so white
Near the lightness of the Virgin's statue
Gracefully rising above waters

So red over the river catching the reflection
Of the evening bricks
Like a glittering blood

Oh how I long for that beautiful present
Overflowing our nights
With each other

    lovely when nature
    catch your eyes
    and won't let go...your lips
    start to move to symphony
    than cradle your heart
    - happy-
