Living In The Moment - Poem by Ray Hansell

Inside it’s safe and warm
Flames dance in the fire place
They cast a shadow on the wall
They cast a light upon your pretty face

Outside a thunderstorm rages
Loud claps of thunder break the silence
The rain batters against the window
It sounds as if the world will end

But that doesn’t matter to me
Because I’m here with you
Our bodies wrapped around each other
Loving, is all we’re going to do

We want the rain to continue
As we watch the fire glow
Feeling deep inside our hearts
That our love will always grow

For the first time in a long time
We both feel so alive
Knowing exactly what was missing
Knowing with others we couldn’t thrive

As the rain continues to fall
Day break begins to occur
I lie awake, she’s fast asleep
I feel this good because of her

I wish I could find the words
To express the love I hide
I’m not sure how to say them
So they remain locked inside

But one day soon I’ll let her know
The things that I want to say
But for now I’ll say nothing
Just cherish the moments that started yesterday
