Inching Closer to You

A Light for Closed Eyes

Time and the sun have weathered this old mind

The body highlights every ache and pain

Complaints are silenced thoughts withheld behind

Lips shut closed, fight to speak your name again

The orchids still surround our empty bed

Their pleasant fragrance perfumes stories old

When you would always render this face red

Revealing your pearls, letting praise unfold

Soft sunlight painted you in golden hues

Inspiring novice brushwork to mature

Your silky amber hair collecting views

Warm tones uncover beauty’s fresh allure

Adventures you led highlight my life’s space

Awaiting life’s release to your embrace
