Afterglow

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

He is cold and she is hot.
Their love fills a microdot.
All she feels erases tears
of his second and third new years.

Now yearning shines in his heart.
She knows it’s just the start
of a climb, the height,
for dedicated light.
But if they head
to sea will this love grow?

He is mild but she has fight.
He uses words instead of might
as her love unlocks that door.
The universe knows what’s in store.

And yearning shines in his heart.
She knows it’s just the start
of a climb, the height,
for dedicated light.
But if they head
to sea will this love grow?

He is warming to her sight.
True love tempts every jaded knight.
Its fragrance calms, then hearts do quake.
A promise fulfilled while awake.

And yearning shines in his heart.
She knows it’s just the start
of a climb, the height,
for dedicated light.
But if they head
to sea will this love grow?
