Diamonds, Emeralds, and Rubies


When you smile at me My Love,

I sense diamonds sparkling

within my heart,

and in our quiet moments,

our moments of holding each other,

not saying a word,

there are emeralds and rubies dancing,


the both of us.

My Love.

Shining Brightly in the Sun

Oceans 184

Green and blue rolling, shining brightly in the sun

as the seagulls hover, expecting bread

the wind moving your straw hat,

in our beach chairs 

I watch you reading,

and I silently wonder

how I ever lived without you,

and again

you take my breath away,

so I pledge my life to you

all over again
