Elizabeth Ann

I never ever thought that my tale, so definite and precisely imagined,

Could be told from the jagged edges of a grassy cliff,

High above an almost green sea trying hard to be tame, so deliberate and nicely savage,

With the answers to questions that start with what if…

The clouds were there too with a benevolent menace, an audience to the unfolding fortunes,

Following the resolute path of the setting sun in the distance,

Reminding me that time is precious, especially in moments of importance,

Like when you standing under a rainbow sharing an existence…

Thinking as one and feeling for each other, you and a lover,

One whose kitty smile makes you explode with contentment.

Looking into her eyes rich with colour, green and brown like the perfect summer,

I could have never imagined I would be so captivated by the beautifully unexpected…

Open to the idea that I could be understood, by someone just like me but poles apart,

Born on the same day but in another world under different circumstances,

Something I have done must be good, or I must have made dreaming an art,

For she makes me feel like nothing can ever hurt my chances…

          ヰ

We get on so naturally that fantasy grows envious, I the man and she the woman,

Our purposes intricately entangled in ways that beg questions of forever,

We have not been promised many years, but what we have takes us beyond being human,

And there nothing matters except that we are together…

Scene to scene every second made to last, holding her in my arms listening to her heart,

A sound so alive it stills my thoughts and makes me listen,

Everything I’ve ever been fading into the past, everything I’ve ever asked given by the stars,

She makes me feel found as if nothing was ever missing…

            也

My own untidy scribble the evidence in the script, given life by the purity of her zest,

What we have and what we give is testament to the uniqueness of our being,

Everything we have is perfect as it is, we live we share and we both confess,

What we have and what we give is ultimately freeing…

  1. “She makes me feel found as if nothing was ever missing”

    that is a beautiful expression to a feeling of contentment.

  2. “What we have and what we give is testament to the uniqueness of our being,
    Everything we have is perfect as it is, we live we share and we both confess,
    What we have and what we give is ultimately freeing…”

    I love this …. I keep coming back to this poem, it moves me, like the ocean.
