The evening heat prickling my skin

The sun’s reflection upon the water

The feel of your hand in mine

Your head upon my shoulder.


The scent of your perfume in the air

Is the scent I most remember

The touch of your love upon my soul

Will stay with me forever.


Your blue eyes with their hint of green

Always with a mischievous sparkle

Your smile with the dimples in your cheeks

That appears with your laughter.


When I awake to smile from a dream

Please know that dream was about you

And I spend every moment of my day

Thanking the heavens I found you.


Your gentle breath upon my face

Your arms wrapped around me

Your mumbling and talking in your sleep

I love everything about you.


When we met on holiday

So young and so naive

Who could have guessed our summer romance

Would become a lifelong love.


All these years later we are still together

And I am in awe to see

You mumbling and talking in your sleep

Laying in bed beside me.
