Words trip off the tongue like pasta into water;
Their impact is never lost on me,
Especially if they’re served with a delicious sauce.
Their taste lingers, lovingly, absorbing into the blood stream
Running rings around my body.
Each syllable has its resonance;
Each connective, its sense of reason.
So I cherish every second that we speak
And I log them deep inside my memory, along with a snapshot
Of the time, the place, so I will always see your face.
In that dark, forbidding place, your grace lights every corner;
Your beauty shines through, your sense of humour still as strong!
Holding hands, we let the silence surround us,
Drinking in the thoughts in that space.
Consequently, I will always love you, like so many others do.
Consequently, I’ll wrap my arms around you.
Consequently, I’ll sit beside you, even though we’re miles away.
Consequently, I’ll tuck you inside my heart so that we’re never apart,
Never ever apart.
