It’s fall and i miss you

The leaves change colors
to start the season.
I walk an empty hull your
heart the reason.

The harvest moon fills,
passionate and true.
Soon the air chills;
It’s fall, and I miss you.

When you’re away I might
compare to autumn trees,
because I miss you like
the branches miss the leaves.

The summer sun has fled.
With it, you’ve gone too.
ahead, there’s only dread.
It’s fall, and I miss you.

Silent adoration

When I’m staring at you,
without making a sound.
I’m lost inside your eyes,
not wanting to be found.

When I’m smiling at you,
without saying a word.
I’m hiding here with you,
not wanting to be heard.

When I’m lying with you,
without making a peep.
I’m counting memories,
instead of counting sheep.

When I kiss you gently,
on lips or on your cheek;
I’m saying “I Love You,”
and I didn’t need to speak.

Love Letter – Spending Time

Dear Ashely,

You could search the outer edges of the galaxy and you wouldn’t find anything more valuable than time. Buying a gift is easy. Giving money – easier. But understanding time is limited means spending it is the pinnacle of human currency. To say, “I’d like to spend some of my time with you,” is deeper than “I love you.”

You could be anywhere with anyone but here you are with me. In the continuum of space and time, right here and now we’re present with each other.

You could be smiling at someone else but you’re smiling at me. Your tears could be wiped by another’s hand. Every minute of your time is a minute of your life, and I’m grateful for the time we spend together.

                    Punctually yours,

-Rob
