Afternoons

by cricketjeff on August 12, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Every word you wrote I read a thousand times
Held you tight inside my dreams with every line
Every sentiment you felt precisely chimes
With another deeply felt but always mine

Everytime I close my eyes I hold you tight
Take your heart and hope that you can feel me too
In my arms I know that you will sleep tonight
And my dreams will fill with smiles because of you

When we meet, and if we meet, before I die
Then you’ll see that I can fly because you smile
I will lift you in my arms to touch the sky
And you’ll show me all the world that built your style

Afternoons without your words are hard to bear
So I close my eyes to know that you are there
