This duet was started by JMC813. It has been awhile since we have done a duet and this one made me want to watch The Notebook again. The picture I used here was originally, best I can tell, posted as a black and white tattoo sketch on deviant art titled Kiss of the Sun and Moon by Eddie. I colored it for this piece.
Written by JMC813 and HastyWords
The sun embraces the horizon with one last caress
As the moon and first stars greet the night with a kiss
My thoughts turn to blissful memories of better times
Times when the nightly rituals of the lover’s Sol and Luna
Were inspired by a devotion shared between two same souls.
Two heart’s as one, we brought a love that warmed the sun
While delivering a passion that brought a glow to the moon.
As fireflies chase each other on the heated evening breeze
I watch them and remember you as I very often tend to do
You would sit with your head resting soft on my shoulder
And I could sense your contentment in every single breath
As the years went by we watched the same calendar of stars
Map out our journey leading far beyond our seeing eyes
And into an ever after that you have seemed to beat me to
The ever after we both happily agreed upon so very long ago
Exists in all its glory just beyond a myriad of stars inside your gaze
You have gone ahead to seek the truth from the heavens above
And I imagine you looking down on me showering me with peace
Sending me signs, as I sit in our special place, in the hopes that I’ll see
You have made a place for me there by your side in celestial paradise
So that when I arrive you may once again rest your head upon my shoulder
I felt my earthly body failing and without another thought I fell prostrate
Happily to the sacred ground we together lived, loved, and died upon
And when I let go of my last breath, and let my heart subside I saw the light
New-found and everlasting contentment returned to me in your presence
There you stood with a lifetime of smiles and warmth painting your face and
Together again we watched the moon and stars kiss a million nights goodbye
And suns that graced every early vista with rays that bathed us in eternal kisses.
