    As we clasp hands and
    embark on our boat
    We close our eyes
    and begin to float

    "Just My Imagination"
    begins to play in my head
    The beginning riff softly echoes
    While lying in our river bed

    We embrace and sigh
    and upon opening my eyes
    I see that the sun is slowly setting
    orange orb of brilliance, waving goodbyes

    The willow trees wave in the breeze
    Creating a veil in front of that sun
    The birds in v formation fly to their
    nesting place, signaling their day is done

    We turn to each other and smile
    And before we know it
    it's night time, the powder blue sky
    morphs into midnight to show it

    The muted moonlight kisses our faces
    as we caress and melt into each other
    Wondering how can it be that 2 souls
    can be so connected to one another

    Still waters suddenly become agitated
    slowly turning into a bubbling brook, churning
    the boat rocks, the water foams and froths
    and even the river bed, looks like it's burning

    But now the river is spent and silent
    as we snuggle ever so tenderly
    Skin damp, glistening under the stars
    Floating down the banks, soaking in tranquility

    Once again we close our eyes
    and fall into slumber upon our boat
    adrift in each others dreams
    On the river, afloat

    as our love mend & devote
    into a bliss of pleasure

    afloat in da river just us two
    becoming the nightly we

    caressing kisses so sweeter
    as my heart grasp as da keeper
    yet my soul become so weaker
    for yo offering ...................

    I really love this piece had me floating in yo tender sway here

    Tenderly they reached out
    and held each other tightly
    echoing the sentiments
    they had felt so often, nightly

    A river of gentle tears
    you could still find in traces
    Spelling out utter bliss
    upon their joyful faces

    And now the moon has faded
    replaced by the rising sun
    They spoon and swoon together
    as a new day has begun

    Thank you Rich, so glad you loved this tender trek.

    of thy water ....

    Most welcome continue to woo me i love it
