Long after I’ve passed you’ll be there bathed in dappled sunlight. Your secrets firmly rooted in the soil. I’ve rested in your shade, I’ve escaped the deluge of seasons here in your presence. I’ve wrapped my limbs around yours and felt the scars of this existence melt away.
If I could pick a place, a place where love outweighs greed. Where silence and peace are not frowned upon nor noise a necessity. Where one smile is a thousand beautiful chapters in my endless heart. I’d fall silent beside you.
You still touch me.
