I Long For You

The moon hangs low
wrapping the night
in a magical blanket
of Florence city lights
Off in the distance
late night cathedral
bells ring
Roof top view
overlooking
the Arno River
Lights glisten
on the Ponte Vecchio
Lovers walk holding hands;
a kiss and a photo op
A lifetime of memories made  –
Locks of love
tell their own story
Slowly sipping a glass
of local Merlot
I wonder how many
of those stories
have stood
the test of time
A toast to you
and yours
and all that have come
and gone before and after
– Eyes wide with amazement
I can’t help but wonder…
What it would feel like,
what would it be like
to share such moments
To point to the stars
and make a connected wish
To share our favorite vino
Chat about the days experience;
give and take
your perspective
and mine intertwine
What would I think
if you held my face
in your hands
and kissed my mouth
Whispering I love you bella
Taking my breath away
Stopping time,
earth moves;
all the cliches
all the romantic poetic verse
tossed together
impacting my heart
like a hurricane
– Roof top view
overlooking
the Arno River
Lights glisten
on the Ponte Vecchio
a rush of wind
my emotions
are as clear
as the view
stars shine bright
above the city of Florence
and my heart knows
… I long for you
