Savor Tender Moments

My eyes cast shadows 
of reflections,
as you swoop down 
nestled in under my arm. 
Your branches reach 
far and wide.

Time stands still 
and feels like eternity,
as we unite and take flight.

Secrets shared,  
fire ignites,
burying skeletons,
of the past.

It was just you and me.
No traces to track 
of our whereabouts.
Messages in a bottle, 
pearls found in oysters.

Savoring the tenderness,
raw and innocent,
never aware of tomorrow.
But it could never last forever,
because 
nothing ever does.

Branches get heavy 
and break 
and arms that held purity,
dissolve 
into our 
beating hearts.
