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. .


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.
