Filling them with awe

Stares at me with jet black eyes

Coffee Huitain

need more coffee
need more coffee








I like coffee in the morning
But in the evening must be wine,
Making it a great mid-morning,
At sunset, I drink wine, while I dine,
When I drink my wine, it is all fine.
In the afternoon, I drink my tea,
Later wine, looking at what is mine.
And I become all I can ever be.

In a dream.

And disappeared,
Haunting me
For eight long years.

This fairy tale dream of mine

To find the girl in the dream
Was finally over.

Our love grew stronger
Every year
For the last 40 years,

Of my life,

From that moment
I had no doubt
You would be there.
