Sunsets

Sunsets have such brilliant hues.

What a wonderful sky canvas to view.

It makes me think of you.

Can we make it through the various sunsets

and all of life’s difficult tests?

It just makes me ponder upon what’s next.

Can this kind of wonderful really last?

Soon the present will be our past.

Our memories will have gone by so fast.

I want to slow down the sunsets frame by frame.

Never do I want them all to be the same.

There will be some days filled with rain.

Hopefully they’ll be filled with more sunshine

and the various flavors of wine.

Like the sunsets I pray we’ll last for all of time.

The Waves

The waves come rushing in

like a flood gate of emotions from within.

My love for you is so real.

You have no idea how I feel.

It’s The first time I’ve felt so surreal.

My mind is spinning like a wheel.

If I don’t hear from you every few hours

you best come home carrying flowers.

And so the waves come rushing in

like a flood gate of emotions from within.

They’re carrying me farther than I’ve ever been.
