“The Sunrise and You” by Mitchell Waldman


Want to lie in the tall grass
in the soft dew
with you
watch the sunrise
the sun reflecting
shining in your eyes
want to kiss you at that moment
at that first newborn burst of light
so like the burst of light
in my heart
when I see you
when I hear you
when I feel you
put my arms around you
and know
in that instant
the truth
like an ancient wisdom I've known
I've carried around in my heart forever.
