T & R

Like a ray of the sun your light is warm
And your eyes deep, as wide as the sky,
Your lips flushed as mine rush to meet yours
As we slip beneath the twilight once more

Our legs tangled like roots of a tree
My hair lies on your chest like leaves,
Your freckles are the color of my skin
My fingertips tracing them
Like rings, over and over again

As we grow strong in certainty
Heading in and out of slumber so sweet
We lay in a silent embrace
And your gaze is ever giving you away,
It runs like water when you speak
Forming pools of shooting stars
That guide us gently through our dreams
