This perfect time, this perfect place…

This Perfect Day

The sun was warm. Cherry blossom petals floated past them. His hand was in her back pocket and his nose nuzzled her hair behind her ear as they walked through the park around the little lake. She giggled. Kids squealed and played on the rolling lawn above the lake. The sky above was as blue as a painting.

That night, a restless love overtook them, transporting them and transforming them and leaving them spent, lying across each other, just before dawn…

This Perfect Day

petals drift through the warm spring air
got my hand on your butt got my nose in your hair
got my heart on my sleeve and it’s all too clear
everything i wanted is all right here

this perfect time this perfect place
a perfect tear slides down your face
It’s such a shame
It’s such a shame…

the rain comes down all night long
we just lie there until the dawn
the world’s in your eyes and you’re in my arms
everything I wanted right here all along

this perfect time this perfect place…

one last kiss one last sigh
one last wish though you know it’s a lie
One more laugh just to not have to cry
I love you baby til the end of time

this perfect time this perfect place
a perfect tear slides down your face
It’s such a shame
It’s such a shame…
