She breaks down 

He arrives in an instant 

…to her flood of wrenching pain

He knows 

He holds her

His love is ever so gentle

…She is his treasure  

He is the calm in her storm 

He would never leave her 

Even when she pushed and clawed 

He…stayed…right…there

My heart in my throat 

As I sat kitty corner in my chair 

Observing love conquer 

She had crowned his heart 

And I found myself silently weeping 

To be one to witness 

…a tender and true love as this 

And as my tears talked a little louder 

They did not even notice

For they were long sunk 

Into the arms 

…of each other 

  

  

Across The Universe 

Inspired by sweet Annie B


Across the universe

His hands are sweeping her hair 

Golden locks, a hiding place for her wilted stare 

His love harnesses no questions 

He knows, she quietly begs for his affection

He cradles each tear drop

He captures each fear 

Allowing her wild spirit 

…to roam with a freedom repaired 

On the tips of butterfly wings 

On the dew of a dawning field 

As he 

Catches a ride, on her ruby studded coattails 

…The magical trace of their glorious fate 

From dancing with the stars up on high

To coming down, with a sobering cry

Golden strands again shielding her eyes

He is sweeping her hiding place

and rocking her grief

Across the universe, exists two lovers

and I wonder

…Is one of them me?
