One last Caress

Summer  breeze ocean’s scenes

Gilded dreams

Sandy holiday 

Endless evenings 

 

Everything is golden 

Everything is turquoise blue

Nothing is grey

Nothing to lose 

 

Knew her from school 

One look and acted the fool

Sea grass waves as we walked passed the dunes

Always felt life is forever, always June

 

Waves dancing below moon lit shore

We walked and talked forever more

The sun is sherbet bright 

The sand is blanket warm

Sandy toes hot pavement roads

 

Stay with me please 

Just don’t say good night

Not for a night not just for pleasure

Please stay with me not a day but forever

 

We met again on a deck

We were awkward as heck

Seems like life began

Seems life will never end

 

She said, “I’ll butter your toast, I’ll give you hope

I’ll make the bed, I’ll give you head”

Gilded dreams, auratus themes

 

I see our future together 

I see a future forever 

Despite all the censors

Two kids and a dog

Too be honest, nothing more

 

Please stay with me 

Please lay with me

Not for a night not just for pleasure

Please stay with me not a day but forever

 

The wedding confirmed our oneness, our grand intent 

You looked at me and melted into lost content

You stayed beyond the mornings dew

The vision came oh so beautifully true

 

Everything is golden 

Everything is turquoise blue

Nothing is grey

Nothing to lose 

 

We made mistakes, we failed to communicate, lost contempt

Tempers flared without regret 

Wrongs yes I made but stay 

If not for me but for life’s dulce

 

Please stay with me 

Please obey with me

Not for a night not just for pleasure

Please stay with me not a day but forever

 

Time has come and gone 

The kids have grown and gone

But we still have each other

We still have a day and another

 

Everything is golden 

Everything is turquoise blue

Nothing is grey

Nothing to lose 

 

Doctors said nothing can be done

You suffer so

Please stay with me don’t go

Sickness will never keep us apart 

We’ll have time for another day in heaven’s eternity but not yet, my sweetheart 

 

Please stay with me 

Please pray with me

Not for a night not just for pleasure

Please stay with me just one more day 

For we’ll have tomorrow’s forever in heaven

 

She thought, “Seems that time melts away so quickly 

Seems like life drifts away so quietly”

 

I sung her one last song, “the rain came down it came 

down so hard

I sucked it all in 

I sucked it to my gut

Until the sun burst shining through and we both knew it to be new”

 

So lonely are the nights

So long the days

Harken to the darkness

Darkness doesn’t rule

But light will eventually come shining through 

 

I prayed, “I have seen your face a thousand times in dreams that shine

May I see your face true a million more in heaven blue”

This is beautiful and well

This is a beautiful and well organized love poem.  I am particularly impressed with the line describing the sun as sherbet bright:  wow!, what a brilliant comparison.  I have been enjoying sherbet for over half a century, and have never thought of it as a source of poetic description--and I feel like a silly fool for missing that,  So I applaud your poem for its verbal excellence and emotional candor.


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
