Standing Tall


In the distance I can see your faint figure emerging from the fog

  Standing tall you are, holding your heart in your hands

Walking slowly but surely towards me

  Playing your guitar near the shore in the sand

A silent tear forming, running across my cheek

  I wait for the words that will keep me at ease

Getting closer now your voice fills the air with such love

You look down on me as a smile forms across your face

Laying down beside me on the beach

  Looking in your eyes I know

They are the only ones I will ever want to search so deeply

  To keep with me forever never melting like the snow

Nice piece. Lovely. I enjoyed it very much. Nothing warms my heart more than hearing a nice love poem.
