Poetry

When I close my eyes

 When I close my eyes

When I close my eyes
 I'm with you
 I can feel your lips on mine
 I can feel your hand entwine with mine
 I can feel your heart beating in time with mine
 The passion between us flares again and again
 Sometimes it seems like a distant memory
 The feelings are powerful
 Sometimes I get scared because your face doesn't come to me
 at night
 My heart reaches out to you
 One day soon, your ship will pull in to shore
 My eyes won't believe the sight in front of me
 As you pull me in your arms and say, "your sailor is
 home." 

To Jason
 Always,
 Susan
