Newport Nights

Hands held tight
our lives hanging
by a thread
Newport nights
comfort in a smile
kisses deep
with passion
and promise
hopes that this
crazy world
could stop for us
for a moment
just one single
in time
when all that we
would remain true
and timeless…
…but nothing seems
to truly last forever
and words
that can’t be taken back
sting at times
when tenderness
from long ago
wanted and needed…
…there was
a story
we told
it was sweet
til the bitter end
and with each day
that passes
and month
that turns
into another year
I still think of you
and wonder
how could you
how could you
not take pause
and reach out…

…Newport nights…
