    I'll be morning glory
    and you'll be sun
    and I'll have you to
    gaze upon
    until the last rays
    of your light fades
    and nighttime slowly
    draws my shades

    sweet anticipation
    of your
    new dawning
    shall take me
    into our new morning ...

    ...the next time

    I'll hang suspended
    and rule the night
    you'll share your glow
    to make me bright
    and even when you
    take on the day
    I'll glance across
    the sky, your way
    you'll nod, and I
    will smile at you
    absorbing all
    I am
    from all
    you do

    ...the next time
    I'll be ebb & flow
    ~the tide
    to your moon...

    the next time love
    can't come too
    soon...

    Ms. A, this flowed like a country brook. I like the opening verse. Never thought of it in that way. You have opened my eyes even more with this piece.

    reminds me

    of that song..."the next time I fall in love it will be with you"...and more. You are saying so much more here.

    Thank you for showing me how it is to love so deeply, so unselfishly...you would be a flower among all the flowers...or the moon to his sun...or the ocean to his moon. Always, deriving your very existence from his brightness, his pull.

    That's love, Ms. A. Thank you

    there you go dipping into that alabaster box again...poet, if i could just spend a moment watching your footprints in the sands along the Nile then i would be overjoyed because then i would have experienced one of true anointed scribes...

    still trying to find Hunter's footprints too. i'm thinking that if i wait here long enough i might just see you two walking along sharing thoughts of friendship...

    with one who stretched HIS arms wide for us all...

    Alyce,

    We live our lives
    For the next time
    Because the next time
    Brings hope

    As much as you speak and I speak...Reading you always seems like making friends all over again

    *wait&see*
