You in My Life

You stand in the sunshine before me 
perpetually young and strong, thin and 
all hair and metal head t-shirts.

You are here with me, my sweetly
scented ghost. You bring the roses
with you although you liked daisies.

We run over the grass in the park
before the bay's salted waters
Taking time to laugh at each other.

We have all the time in the world.
In this fairy world, we remain youthful, we remain in love.

You have eyes that cut my glassy heart like diamonds, but instead they simply shine so that I can see the love there 

Our love is secret like the end 
of things when the moon will turn red
and the saints come down to sing.

No one else knows when we shall die,
but we have been promised eternity,
because we love and love never dies.

    1. Aww! Don’t cry. Ok. I will cry, too. But, we will laugh together, too. I will write a funny poem next time.
