the little girl who dwells inside

20140507-191242.jpg

little boy within him smiles at her

an amber glow shines

a breath away is her kiss

she skips between floral buckets on the corner

chooses gladiolas over tulips

will not tell her secrets of a beloved prince

golden crowned with copper crayons

coloring a path of yellow brick

leading to a treasure chest

full of dreams

manifested by the woman she is now

he loves her how she is

the amber glow from within his smile

longing for her kiss

a breath away from his lips
