in our gazebo in Jamaica...

OUR GAZEBO

We sat in a gazebo

By the Caribbean Sea

And talked

Listened

Got to know each other.

At sunset, with the days last light

My eyes strained to capture

One last sight of the laughter

Playing prettily around her eyes.

She was so lovely,

I was charmed

We stopped talking

Just listening to the waves, and enjoying each others presence.

Just two days before

She'd been a stranger

And now we shared a closeness

More than friends

Just sitting in the dark and saying nothing.

That night the sea became

 our sea

And the gazebo became

our gazebo

Her life

My life

Our life.

My Beloved Felica...
All I know is that you are the first thing
I think of in the morning and the last thing I think of at night.

I know that there is a sun, a moon and nine planets,
and that in my universe they revolve around you.

I've read the works of Hemingway,
heard the music of Tchaikovsky,
admired the paintings of Gaugin-
yet none of them matches the beauty I've seen in you.

I can talk to you all day, look at you all week,

hold you all month and not get tired.

All I know is that I love you.
