No Paradise

Recommended Posts

JoelJosol
The beach sand is so soft my feet sank in them
the way my body sinks in yours,
 the sun is golden this late hour and warm
just like when you keep me in tight embrace.
 
I wait for you here like the waves coming from the deep blue
crashing here into white and light green, like your kisses.
The sky is blue and cloudless, beyond are small boats
and brown hills but there is no sight of you.
 
Do come to me soonest, bring me good news
for this is no paradise without you.

I wrote this while waiting for my wife on a favorite tourist spot island in the Philippines, Coron.

Thanks Judi. My wife loved it too 🙂 when I read it to her when we met. Just letting her know I was thinking of her while waiting 🙂
