Can Not Light Shine Without Sun - Can I Not Breath Without Thee - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Walk with me my dearest one. Take my hand, and I shall lift thee into my caring arms.
Let me hold thee against my heart, my body, my mind.
Sweet light that once shined, why now do ye fade?
Wind light, sweet smelling, and warm, surround my love, so that she might feel safe once again.
Take walks along the beach, and dream of me darling.
Sit upon life's sand, and draw my name upon the earth.
Sunset, come again into her life, and mine.
Dusk, hide no more the beauty of the land.
Kiss me, for my burning is so that I can not breath.
Be there for me, when I can not be there for thee.
Taste all that this world has to offer,
but be careful not to let the hate choke off your air.
Can Not Light Shine Without Sun?
Can I not Breath without thee?
Ye are my heart, ears, eyes, and lungs,
The smell from your clean, fresh skin sends me into full ecstasy.
