10 for 2

10 days
Of heaven on earth
Fun and laughter
Talking and sharing
Living and learning
Loving and caring

We walk along Monona
Speaking and seeking
The path to diverge
The route to explore
The ocean to sail
The land to traverse

She sees me for the man
Not the boy of youth
She understands my thoughts inside
And asks to hear some more
She seeks to get to know me better
And finds a friend to call on

Her head on my shoulder
I weep within
We wait til December
Such joys surging through
Exploring the yet to come
Sweet passion of life
