The Beauty of You Peeps Through

Filed under: T — jacquirichards @ 7:48 pm


Just like you in my life, d’ya know ?

Rays of Sun behind a cloud, start to show,

With your love, but they only last a minute or so,

I look for a second look, but the image begins to go.



An exciting glimpse, for no more than a second or two,

The beauty of you, shimmers and peeps through.


Whether you weep or awake from sleep,

The glisten in your eyes, is only a peep,

In bed, when you lie next to me,

There’s a glimpse of your toe, momentarily.




Just like an evening with you, doesn’t seem to last long,

The spirit of you is in every passing birdsong,

So many snapshots, one after another,

Images of us appear in my mind, lovin’ each other.




Year after year, visions appear then disappear,

Just like a meteorite, seen from a rocket,

But the picture of you in my locket, I keep in my pocket,

Is the most clear, the one I hold most dear and keep near …

(repeat to fade).
