I miss you…often
And especially, this afternoon.
You give me so much to go on
Your absence leaves me craving
The difference is subtle
I want for nothing with you
Your love is perfection embodied.
The afternoon sun warms me
And right now, its brightness is like a reflection
Of your style, your grace, your kindness,
The very essence of you.
I squint at its glare
until my eyes fall upon the larger-than-life shadows…framed so beautifully
By your scent, your lips, your smile
Your rhythms, your movements.
You’re better than good to me
You’re good for me
In spite of me
It’s all good!
I bask in the afterglow
Because even when I’m not so good
You bring out the good
Makes me want to be with you
For good…for ever, for always
It’s definitely a …Good Afternoon, my love!
