Each Other's Sunset And Sunrise

                                                         When in love, in deep love

We know or at least are aware of

Each other’s sunset and sunrise

About the rain

About our pain

About our lows

And our highs.


Say what

Love is beautiful

And peaceful

We say hello and goodbye

Many times in the course of the day

When in love

What a wonderful journey

Staring at the sky above

Looking for rainbows

To deal effectively with our lows

While searching for nothing

While hallucinating and dreaming

Of love, hope and peace

To say the least.


When in love

We joke about Mrs. Victor

What a crazy vernacular sense of humor

A lonely dove

Is not what the doctors order

Geese and ducks always walk and travel in pair

To fight sadness, solitude and despair

Of course, we know about

Each other’s breakfast, lunch and dinner

Together, we do a lot

We talk all the time

We smile, laugh, giggle, dream and rhyme.
