lip balm sun song

building a home with someone

her lips will be warm and nice

from the pear lip balm sun song that

will bake on in the heat of the day.

we'll work hard side by side then

come home to the moon hung high

and I'll want to sip her gasp like

fine wine, palm to palm, soul to soul

for I see our life when I look in her eyes,

hear it when she calls my name to



feel it as she lays her head on me

as we sway to R&B by the sink,

suds long gone, and know it as coin

runs dry even as we work all day

to have more time like this, to have

that life that is ours, that it is love

that is the warm buoy that will see

us home

love poems
