After A Thousand Years — After Christina Perri, A Thousand Years (a golden shovel poem)

holding-hands-couple-black-white

I feel you smiling, when I wake every 
morning. With a single breath,
I see your body shiver. With every 
look across the room — no matter the hour,
your soul stretches — and my soul has 
to stop and  shake its wings. So, come! 
Let’s spend the years (the next thousand) next to 
each other, with our others. Let’s not waste this!
