Poem: Honeydew Eyes

Honeydew eyes
I’ll follow you
Into the depths of the ocean blue

You’ve always believed in me
My potential, my dreams, and my goals
You helped me discover the world

Together we’ve traveled around around the globe and back home

You’re my persephone, my Athena, my Rome
You’re everything I need you to be, and so much more

We’re still on a world tour, regardless of where we are
Whether close or far, we’ve always been able to overcome anything, even black tar

You’re my strength, my muse, and you’re damn strong; you don’t take no bruises

We never take any losses
All we do is win

Times are sometimes tough and times can get uncertain and thin
But I’m drunk off life with you, even without the gin

You’re my tonic, my elixir of life.
You’re my everything, my beautiful wife.


Honeydew eyes,
I follow you
Into the depths of the turqoise-blue.

Eternal sunshine
My soul and my muse
I wake up in the morning and spring blooms.

Your mind is divine, sweet and sublime
Let’s turn back the wings of time.

Walking with you by the shores of the sea
Feeling the warm breeze
Let’s sing, dance, eat more wine and cheese
Breathe in the new day; apply the new glaze.

Breathing through the smog and the haze
Let us praise
Each day as if it were our last
Sailing together, hands holding the mast.

You are my muse
The one I choose
To guide me with your light.

The might of your pen,
Helps renew me creatively, again.

Thank you for being my light,
My beautiful delight.

You are my only one,
Just like the rising sun

Let’s imagine like our life was done,
Then turn back the clock and press re-rerun.
