Amidst the Cherry Blossoms
As the sun sits high on its throne
pink rain falls in delicate petals
cherry blossoms scatter the joy
and the earth laughs in flowers.
The cool breeze blows lightly
caressing our delicate white skin
eliciting goosebumps and shivers
as we delight in the fruits of nature.
Walking with you in the golden sunshine
hand in hand, hearts entwined
oblivious to discord, we trip on gnarled roots
and down the rabbit hole we fall.
As night descends with blackened fears
wrapping us with a cold shawl
we look upward, pondering
the meaning of our existence.
But the distant light glows in radiant pulses
our salvation, our beacon of hope
for when it is dark enough,
you can surely see the stars.
Come along with me, my love
lift me up in light or dark,
dare to dream beneath the smiling moon
the unthinkable, the unimaginable….
…. do you dare?
