The vision of your smile
Is forever etched into my mind
Dominating any memory:
The grandeur of a singing moon, the
Radiance of a waking sun
Or even the brilliance
That is the union
Between ocean and shore.
In this thought more often
Than there are hours in the day.
It’s the only thing
That brings comfort to my broken heart;
Peace to my aching longing soul.
I am but a simple man with simple needs
And my needs are you
They were always you
They will always be you
No matter if I’m destined to wander
The vastness of the cosmos alone,
My heart will forever be your throne
Jonathan M. Emerson
