Momentary magic

A perfect summer’s day on golden sands,
With you, my love, beside me on the beach.
The only one who always understands
And likes to keep me well within her reach.

The day draws on and I draw close to you
To share a glass of wine and knowing smiles.
I lose my self in all the things you do,
Each movement on your face that so beguiles.

You kiss my cheek and gaze towards the west;
A sudden beauty paints the sea with gold.
The clouds turn red and all the world is blessed
By forces far too old to be controlled.

Such beauty cannot last and swiftly dies
And yet I see it always in your eyes.
