A steady rhythm

You, me, and where the road meets the sky

We laughed our way South

Cheerful Bluebonnets waving

As we pass at highway speeds.

A kaleidoscope,

Reflected in your wide eyes,

Both chocolate brown,

Like my own but brighter still,

The eighth wonder of the world!

The sun hangs high up

Among the greater blue sky

Clear as clear can be

Yet I find I am walking

With a hop-skip on cloud nine

We were young and dumb

passionate exchanges, yes

An old candle burnt

Like missing puzzle pieces

You fit the shape of my heart
