The golden sunsets we watch together
The stories we invent with each other
Imagination of each one working in tandem
Piecing together thoughts picked at random-
Silly games that together we conjure
Shaking with laughter to our very core-
For the thousandth time, I pause to marvel
At my golden luck, as I see the sparkle
In your smiling eyes that has me spellbound
In your exuberance, love for life I have found..
These moments are transient, I’m acutely aware
Soon you will change, the idea gives me a scare!
So I try to capture each moment you spend with me
On camera, on paper, quite industriously!
You have taught me to live in the moment
To enjoy silliness of make-believe and pretend
You’ve given me hope and a new perspective
In dispelling my gloom, you are always effective!
