Poem for David; We Could Be Lovers…

 For My Husband:

 

 

 

 We Could Be Lovers.        written  3 May 2010   – PATENTED

 

 

 

We could be lovers if you would walk with me

 

along the oceans’ shore,

 

into the glistening silver…

 

at distance’ further’st door.

 

 

 

  Our steps

 

 

 

  … measured & matching after years of adjusting,

 

  my steps to yours – your steps to mine.

 

Both hands in your pockets in that casual way

 

   my right hand curled into your left pocket hand.

 

Our feet silent on the virgin sand.

 

 

 

We turn and survey the distance we have walked.

 

Sand still damp, holds the imprint of our footsteps,

 

 for a while…..

 

We have come a long way, but

 

  there’s a long way yet, to go.

 

 

 

The distant tide is on the turn,

 

 

 

 

 

 a chilly breath of breeze ruffles your hair.

 

 I reach out a hand to touch the sliver-streaks

 

    just visible among the brown strands.

 

 

 

 

 

We turn again and make our way

 

   around the curve of ocean-bay, up

 

      the sand dunes, across the road, over

 

             the fence, in the days’ fading light,

 

              to our home.

 

 

 

You are my anchor, my safe harbour,

 

         my warm, my shelter from the storm.

 

 You hold me lightly, when I fly

 

       pick me up when I crash & cry, still

 

           your love is true. I bless that God gave

 

                     me to you.
