For Now and Forever
Beside the fire, we warm ourselves,
Listening to the calming waves of the ocean.
We say nothing for extended periods of time,
Silence sketching memories for the future.
I remember the first time we did this…
When we left the city for the coast,
We only left the bedroom to walk the shops, to have a meal, to grab more wine.
Time was endless then, and we didn’t truly appreciate what we had.
But we’ve learned. Boy, we’ve learned!
And so it’s now, that we don’t have to say anything…
A fleeting touch is endless,
A look, a smile, a kiss says everything.
I love you, and I love it here.
For now and forever.
