A Sunset Kiss
Billowing clouds rise high above the mountains|
While the far side of the ocean caresses their feet,
And the white of its waves kiss the shoreline
Welcoming us to their liquid pleasures out of the summer heat.
Holding hands, we run into the water laughing
Jumping into the soft gentle waves to play and swim,
While the sand piper’s cries can be heard as they fly above us
And beach flowers sway to the rhythm of nature’s hymn.
Enjoying the warmth of the sand between our toes
We search for pretty sea shells under the water’s frothy skirt,
I steal a kiss from your luscious red lips and hold you close
As we sit on the beach watching the sailboats on the water
And I nervously wait to pop the question while we flirt.
Your smile shines bright like the sun edged in gold
Melting my heart as you stroke my face…such a gentle touch,
Hazel eyes glowing, auburn hair flowing over your chest
Great passion rises within me and I am loving you so much.
As we sit enjoying God’s masterpiece of colors on the horizon
I look deep into your eyes with ring in hand and say,
“Honey, I love you terribly and want you to marry me
Please say you will as I do hope and pray?”
You tilt your head upward and smile playfully
Put your arms around me and snuggle into my chest,
“My heart is overflowing with love for you, baby
And I’ve been dying to answer ‘yes’ to your request.”
I am kissing you with great passion now
As around my neck your arms do reach,
I hug you tight under the silver in the moonlight
For today’s sunset has just now kissed the beach.
We walk arm in arm back across the sand dunes
And you put your head on my shoulder with a smile,
You are singing ‘Love is Like a Butterfly’ so beautifully
That tears come to my eyes…
And my heart is in my throat for a good long while.
We reach your home and sit on the porch swing
Cuddling up together as we rock to and fro,
Eagerly we begin planning our future together
And in the excitement your lovely hazel eyes are all aglow.
Then looking to the heavens the twinkling stars
Reflect in those beautiful eyes as I steal another kiss,
And holding you tight, I promise to dream of you in my sleep
Then with a beguiling smile you tease me,
'And dreaming of YOU, baby, will give ME a night full of bliss.'
