Longing for the day
when morning’s sweet
embrace surrounds us-
the day, so cherished,
so far away,
when I hear your laughter
echo the roar of the ocean,
delighting the sun-
to be with you,
in the light of day,
no chattering box,
nor pending duties,
just you
and I,
under the clear blue sky,
through the passing of light
into the glory of night.
