Your eyes glistened in the moonlight as it broke dust.
We stared at each other both searching the emptiness.
I swept your hair from your cheek as you gently sighed and rested your face,
Trapped in a timeless place, our breath in sync.
You’re in my arms, resting your face,
Bundled against my chest, listening to the thump thump thump of my heart.
No words flow, on the breath, life passes in silence, we are complete.
In a moment everything is calm, in another chaos erupts,
The dawn beckons as the dust settles and the moon escapes our gaze.
A moment of stillness and purity can last an eternity. I wrote this as a memoir. Sometimes, I miss that simplicity of life and the beauty it can provide if only we truly looked.
