What makes life awesome

The touch of a hand

A joke in the dark

Secrets be told

Midnight laughter


Tears drop from the eyes

They dampen the shirt

A warm, lingering embrace

Needed comfort


Sand slips bewteen toes

Water splashed on dry skin

Smiles and cries of excitment 

Vactioning together


The holidays, the off time

The dark days, the bright

The awesome part of life

Is not found in possesions, belonging to one

But felt by the heart, and shared by many
