footprints

i’ve forgotten so many of our memories
they seem to wash out to sea
lost in the sand of living each day

but there are a few things that remain
like footprints in the sand

every moment

when you whisper in my ear
and i feel your neck against my nose
and your smell is a part of everything in my brain
when our skin is touching

when we don’t need to talk
and you want to hear me anyway

when your softness surrounds me

when the waterfalls all flow out to space
and the snow is everywhere in the streets

when the sparkles
leak out of our bodies
and we can’t remember our names

life goes on

i miss you

i was just thinking about you
and wondering if you were thinking about me
because it’s been a while since i’ve heard your sweet voice
and felt the tingle that you make me feel

and it’s almost time
for us to talk
and i’m a little excited

and then i call you
and your name pops up
before i dial
because you called me
just a few seconds earlier

i just love it
when that happens

extra kisses

it’s time to go
there’s never enough time
so we steal a few smooches

and just a few more

now it’s time to go
and we really need just a little more cuddling
and a few more kisses

because there’s never enough love
and never enough kisses
and never enough cuddles
to last till the next time

my lover

my love doesn’t wait for me
she is always fighting
we lost each other in the battle
as we slayed the sloppy demon

and the fog of war
keeps us sharp
so we don’t snipe each other

while the zombies fall
in the mountains of their own rotting flesh

and we slaughter them

till our love brings us home

may we all rest in peace

praise jah

somehow it’s you

every breath
escapes our soul
each drop
of life

walking along the beach
or in the sand of the lonely desert
the snake scurries away
the crab is washed away by the tide

and we continue onward
with the sand in our toes
and the sun on our necks

love for you

when you are here
it is easy to love you
the wind is clear
the birds chirp pensively
every step brings us closer
to where we are going

I hold your hand
and you guide me
through the parking lot
of life

The children play
and yell
and scream
about the insanity of existence
and the ducks
are always talking some nonsense
about nothing at all.

And somehow we just know
that it’s our love
behind it all.

love is love

love lasts forever
love is momentary
love endures hardship
love brightens darkness
love builds us up
love makes us stronger
love is powerful
love is weak
love is peace
love is turmoil
love is strength
love continues
love remains true
love heals wounds
love tastes delicious
love flies in the clouds
love lives underwater
love comforts
love is silent
