Something lingered among the breeze that night…
as we sat side by side, an audience to the reflection on the water.
The clouds were eavesdropping.
The palm trees leaned in for a glimpse.
A certain blanket of calmness wrapped around me with every word you spoke.
I knew then…
that I could listen to your soothing voice until you ran out of breath,
even if it was a lifetime later.
And I knew then…
that even though we would soon be worlds apart,
you were all that my eyes would ever see.
