Gentle

Posted in Life in the Country on 12, September 2016 by nathanbusch

what creature is this who is so gentle

can it be that she is a mere illusion

to be gone at daybreak

what strange twist of fate

brought her to be alone

searching the world for one

can he hold her love

in the palm of his hand

like a newborn child

can he be so gentle

as she and still be

the man that he is

Enough

If I could have held your hands and
tasted the sweet kiss of your lips
under the full rainbow

just once

tonight

that would have been enough

If I could have quietly held your hand and
watched with you the red glow of the
clouds over the setting sun

just once

tonight

that would have been enough

If I could have held you close and
caught the first sight
of the nine-day moon

just once

tonight

that would have been enough

If I could hold your hand and walk
with you to experience
all this and more

just once

for the remainder of our lives

that would be pure heaven

and that would be more than enough
