It has been ages since I’ve been here with Kate and the Five Minute Friday gang. Here’s to new words.
Wild and free like the falling leaves
That October has called home.
Like you tug at your shirt sleeves,
Prim & proper while skipping stones
That dance on water and fly away with your dreams.
Like the kisses you stole
Beneath mama’s porch light
When we were young and life called
Whispering promises that shined oh so bright.
Like the darkness that gathered
As the waves danced with the shoreline
The night we made promises we said our hearts would keep
For years to come and through lives to live and souls that weep
‘Till we saw nothing but each other and the fading light behind our eyes.
Like the veil you lifted
When your eyes shown with tears
And your finger sparkled gold
When the world was a song.
Like the memories we’ve shared
Frozen in time and pictures and
Frames that are still shots in my mind.
Like you took the pieces of my heart
And stitched them back together.
