Forever You and I

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

forever-you-and-i

Your smile at the age of two,

button blue eyes,

lips like cherries and I knew,

it would be forever you and I.

Together in the sand,

days of building castles,

in which we’d someday live,

forever you and I.

Teen dreams.

starry-eyed love,

kisses sugary sweet,

Crossing rainbow bridges,

days spent beneath the sun,

nights filled with stars -

walking hand in hand as moonbeams glowed.

White swans and golden bands,

taking our eternal vows,

memories so precious -

forever you and I.

No hill too high to climb,

just as long as you are mine

and when you smile -

it’s like sunshine after the rain.

The road has been long,

so much that we have shared,

the dreams that we dreamed of.

Now in our twilight years,

surrounded by our love,

many more sunrises and sunsets we’ll share -

forever you and I.

Wow.. this is so beautiful. It's a beautiful love story. Second last line is my favourite. Keep up with the great pieces.

You explain the love that grows and holds it's beauty on us throughout our whole lives. What we all need and cherish. Love is so wonderful and brings back memories of the past and adds new loves to make it even more special. Thank you so much for all the love you express and share. Every time I leave your writings I drift away with something so special. A little bit happier and hungry for more.
