Poetry by Jeff Green


First night

As evening fell we walked beneath the trees
And watched as stars appeared across the skies.
We cuddled ever closer ‘gainst the breeze
I saw a perfect future in your eyes.

I held you and the world did not exist
Our hearts combined to sound a single beat
We lost ourselves the moment that we kissed
From then until forever we’re complete

I can’t forget the magic of that night
Each moment in your arms is part of me
When midnight fell we basked in silver light
We were reborn as lines of poetry

The stars sang songs of beauty high above
The Moon was full and we were new in love
