When I Do Awake Next To You - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

When I do awake next to you
it is as if you
have never been away
and the seeing of your face
does delight me
like the sun rising in the east
and then I do want to rise up with it
and fill the room
with all the colours of the morning
and I do want to become your horizon
and I do want to rejoice in the colours
of gold and yellow and orange
as you are my dawning,
my reason for living.

As the midday sun does warm up the earth
and the heads of the flowers do rise up to follow it
so do my love for you
and my love does thrill my heart
as it beats only for you.

When the last rays of the sun
does set beneath the horizon of the earth
I do want to embrace the goodness of the day
and like a sunflower bow my head
in acknowledgement of the grace
that God has bestowed upon me
as our kind of love does come
only once in a lifetime
and I want to grasp onto you
like the last golden rays of the sun
does grasp upon the earth
and in that moment
I do want to kiss you
before the twilights comes.
