Orange Words: Art of Hearts

I want your name to be the song I sing in the shower at dawn.

Let’s be an art of hearts, forever…

The world is full of love poems
but I don’t want to read another.
I want us to be the poem others read
I want my thoughts to be a sonnet to you
My words to be a ballad of our love
My actions to be an ode to us

Every little thing we do
Rhyming with the poetry
of dancing roses in the valley
The world is full of love stories
but I don’t want to read another.
I want us to become one.

Let us be that fairy tale
that parents would read to their kids
generations from now.
Let’s become the book on the shelf
That the library never discards.
A story that would sail on the wings of time
and become one with the wind
Engraved forever in the memory of the universe
the world is full of love songs
but I don’t want to listen to another.

I want us to become one.
I want your name to be the song
I sing in the shower at dawn,
I want your laughter
to be the soundtrack of my days,
I want to slow dance to the silence of the words
you say with your eyes,

I want the world to put its ear to my chest
and hear your heart beating within mine.
Let’s be art
Let’s be the eternal poem
the rainbow reads to the earth after a storm
Let’s be the immortal story
the moon tells the stars every night
Let’s be that timeless love song
The sky sings to the ocean whenever she’s sad
Let’s be an art of hearts, forever…you
