MOMENTS OF PERFECTION

Copyright 2016 Robert E. Shandor

 

Sitting here under a big oak tree

Nobody around but you and me

Ruminating over what our future might be

While a Dylan song’s wafting in on a breeze

 

You slip your hand softly, into mine

Fleshing-out our cosmic design

Where words might fail, a soft touch does fine

A moment of perfection, ambered in time

 

Feeling cool air passin’ by me

Sun shinin’ through the leaves of our tree

Clouds in the sky float like ships at sea

While changing in size and luminosity

 

I see your eyes gazin’ into mine

A message of love, the non-verbal kind

Where words might fail, a heartfelt look does fine

A moment of perfection, ambered in time

 

And I don’t know where this might go

But I’m hopin’ it’s here to stay

Let’s keep doin’ what makes love grow

In each and every way, ‘cause

It just feels good, yeah, you know it feels right --

Like takin’ a drive on a warm summer night

 

Spreadin’ out our picnic, fit for a king

Doesn’t look like we missed a thing

A few bees buzzed us, but they didn’t sting

Two bright butterflies together took wing

 

I smell your perfume, like fine wine

It lingers long and deep in my mind

Where words might fail, a lasting scent does fine

A moment of perfection, ambered in time

 

Lying here watchin’ the sun go down

Evening birds chirpin’, homeward bound

Things are turnin’ quiet, there’s hardly a sound

As dewdrops bloom on the grass on the ground

 

You lean toward me, lookin’ so divine

I lean toward you, your lips touch mine

Where words might fail, a sweet kiss does fine

A moment of perfection, ambered in time

 

And I don’t know where this might go

But I’m hopin’ it’s here to stay

Let’s keep doin’ what makes love grow

In each and every way, ‘cause

It just feels good, yeah, you know it feels right --

Like takin’ a drive on a warm summer night
