    We walked through the great park
    Kicking orange, yellow and brown colored leaves
    The afternoon chill of Fall unable to penetrate the warmth of our sweaters
    Loving smiles deflect the wind from touching our face
    Uncanny how we see in front of us while looking in each other’s eyes

    We sip hot coco sold to us by an unlicensed vendor
    We have helped him feed his family
    He has provided us with liquid warmth
    An honest trade-off without the city’s bureaucratic permission
    Another element to our perfect day
    Something else to feel good about
    As we sit on the bench watching children play

    Walking home our hands squeeze tighter
    Quicker is our pace; a bit longer is our stride
    Laughing as we deftly maneuver through impatient traffic
    We are ageless
    Our feeling timeless
    Day has turned to night
    We did not notice

    We read each other poetry
    Words in perfect time with the rhythm of flickering flames
    I watch the words leave your lips
    I am hypnotized
    Please don’t ask me what you have read
    I only know it’s beautiful…what else can it be?

    Sweet music the perfect backdrop to our conversation
    Repeating thoughts that have gathered perhaps for years in our minds
    We listen
    We understand
    We agree and disagree
    We laugh
    We sit so close together
    Silently staring…we think

    Love has dictated the day’s events
    Could there be anyone as happy as us?
    Has anyone else made love this way?
    This is how we did it this beautiful autumn day

    BE
