Shadow

The wind blowing through your hair,

Hits my face from the same direction.

I brush the hair out of my eyes,

So I can keep looking at you.

You’re so beautiful to me.

I can see your lips moving,

But I can’t make out what you are singing.

Do you know your nose twitches before you giggle?

I could look at you all day!

I am stunned….

Mesmerised by you.

The sun is slowly collapsing over the horizon,

The bare trees cast long shadows like tall men.

A chill passes through me,

And you pull your cardigan closed to stay warm.

It’s time to go home.

We keep walking through the end of today,

Past the pools of yesterdays swim,

Past the grocery store where you bought movie snacks,

And I watched silently.

You stop to pick a plum from the tree of old Mrs Beckitt.

Your nose wrinkles, and you giggle with your first bite

You are a delight.

I notice my step has matched yours…

Left after right in time to my heart.

There it is…..home.

You take your key from your pocket

And I watch as you let yourself inside.

I turn and walk away.

You have taken another long romantic walk,

That only one of us knows about.

See you tomorrow.
