Clear cool water wading up to your waist
yellow sun and green palms cast shadows on your face
A bright smile like those that I’ve loved this whole time
These days in this heaven, the days when you’re mine.
A turn of the waist to the sound of a drum
That gorgeous white shirt and your skin like the sun
The small gestures you give to those on the street
With no gloves on their hands or shoes on their feet
You make me see them clearly, but you make me see you too
Because the things that make them happy are the reasons you are you.
The passion and opinions that can make me so mad
Or the frustration from love that can make me so sad
I will take over anything because the love that I feel
When we are together and dancing, it’s real
I’ll love you for always and miss you like a lover
And like you said in that proverb I’ll hold you close like a brother
The smile on your face when you say something funny
Your love of mint tea and sweet Manuka honey
My dearest, my friend, I adore you so much
That these words that I write shall never be enough
to tell you I want us forever in this way
My laughs and my friendship will never go astray.
