  2. That Night

    It’s just like that night
    Do you remember that night?
    That warm summer’s night?
    The window was open.
    I had just changed the sheets in my bed
    It was warm
    The quilt was put away
    Leaving just a sheet to cover the shy mattress
    I could hear the crickets outside
    Their chirping was like music
    The lamp was turned off
    The only light came from the shine in your eyes
    I loved your eyes
    I still do
    They remind me of that night
    Do you remember that night?
    That warm summer’s night?
    The window was open
    The air being pulled in by the attic fan smelled so sweet
    Like the candles that sit on my desk
    They weren’t lit
    They have changed since then
    Since that night
    Do you remember that night?
    That warm summer’s night?
    Your voice was calming
    So calming
    Like the scent of the cricket song
    Playing over the candles
    And the naked bed
    Do you remember that night?
    That warm summer’s night?
    I felt so small and scared
    This was so different
    So…
    So exciting
    I remember that night
    That warm summer’s night
    You were so strong
    You helped me think
    Helped me realize
    I fell in love with you that night
    That warm summer’s night
    Do you remember that night?
    The night the bed creaked
    Under new weight
    Adding to the cricket songs
    And the unlit candles
    They didn’t need to be lit
    The fire was elsewhere
    It was in our hearts
    They didn’t need to be lit
    The light was elsewhere
    It was in our eyes
    I truly fell in love with you that night
    That warm summer’s night
    Please remember that night
     
  3. Dragon Wings

    Swiftly may I fly
    On dragon wings spread
    Take me away
    To lands unsaid
    Let me fly
    On said dragon wings
    Let me see the fanticifal things
    Give me a cloak
    A staff
    Soft shoes
    A dress that flows
    With my every move
    Let me blend in
    With the men and the elves
    Let me see them dance
    And perform their spells
    Let me be one
    With leaf and tree
    Let me swim
    In the wide open sea
    Let me see creatures
    The big and the small
    From tree tops to ocean bottoms
    Let me see them all
    Let me see farmers
    And merchants
    And more
    Give me dragon wings
    So I may soar.
