My freckled face
And your warm blue-green eyes,
come together on this serene
summer afternoon

The sun enhances your toned, tanned body.
You are brilliant and untouched,
and I am sweaty and sandy
from playing volleyball in the
soft rays of sun.

I thought you were a shadow
cast over my day,
but instead you are the sun,
the constant stream of consciousness in my mind,
the umbrella for my rain,
the shine of joy that I need,
the light that keeps my heart beating;
hard and loud,
for the world to hear.

You grasp my hand
and take me aside;
walking gracefully beside me.
You wander through your tangled thoughts,
talking about TV, people, the world.

When you talk all I can do is listen,
for words don’t come out of my mouth
when I try to speak.
I stumble over the simplest words.
like “Yeah” and “umm”
but you still smile, that tender smile,
made bigger by those sweet dimples.
So I listen to your gentle voice,
and my own stumbling heart

Oh, how I’m glad
that my freckled face
and your warm blue-green eyes,
have come together on this
glorious summer day.
