steady rhythm, steady beat
steady arms, steady feet
your hand on my back
your name on my lips
I could dance all night
to the rock of your hips


each string of my heart plays
in notes of honey and amber
to rhythms of yesterday
and melodies of tomorrow.
come sway with me;
come stay with me.


beside me

I've been tracing lazy circles in this water all afternoon
let the birds fly
let the sun fall
let the clouds drift away
I am where I've always wanted to be
still; in a place with you
beside me


capturing each moment with you
lightning bugs in a mason jar
lighting up every still night
holding you in my heart


too much to lose

seams threatening to tear
around the edges where
tears pool as i
reflect on all that i
and have been given
too much to hold
too much to lose



clasping words once strewn
carelessly without thought of time
you carry them close
affording us the luxury
of once again
savoring syllables
so quickly cast
so hard to grasp


smooth stone
still in my hand
worn soft with time
and the dreams we share
I hold you tight
as we walk into
the future
yet so bright
