Street of Dreams

By Mitchell Waldman

Street of Dreams

Your hand in mine feels as natural
as the waves crashing softly
on the sandy beach,
your eyes eager and bright
like a newly discovered star
on a distant ancient night,
a glow I've stared into
so many lifetimes before,
your kiss a remembered gift from heaven
moon face smiling down at us
as I hold you here close
your cheek against my chest
both of us still
not daring to break the spell
the night surrounding us
like a navy blue silken veil,
hearts pounding out a rhythm together
holding you tighter and tighter
feeling you breathe against me
neither saying a word
the two of us
content in the moment
closing our eyes and savoring it
standing smack in the middle
of our street of dreams.
