Happy…If Only For Now


You sleep so soft beside me

My hand caressing your hair

I whisper forever, I’m your key

To the fated dawn of a new destiny

I’ll comfort you, be your bed

And you’ll drive me to places we’ll go

Holding hands atop our heads

Smiling like time were our own


And, baby, when I kissed you

Never ever doubt me again

If you fear the days anew

I’ll be lying here in our den

And, baby, when I kissed you

Never ever tear dreams again

If you feel this way, don’t adieu

‘Cause tonight, we’re the luckiest men


Your “hi’s” can melt my eyes

Your voice cradles me to sleep

In movies, I’ve seen you thrice

Can’t seem to get you out of my mind

I slap myself, how luck am I

To be with someone like you right now

And until we say good night,

To you, then and now, my heart will bow.



And I just want to hold you

Just once ’til you leave

Because when you’re gone, baby

I cry.

I cry.





THIS IS THE TAROT CHALLENGE, a 78-day writing challenge where everyday I pick out a random card from my tarot deck and write something about, against, inspired by, based on the card by the day’s end. The works can range from poetry to fiction to drama. When the card is from the major arcana, the title of the work should be the card name. When the card is from the minor arcana, the title can be different but the card drawn should be revealed at the end.
