I would love to hear from you: markklosswriter@outlook.com
Close To Me

To see a dolphin leap,

Smell flowers in full bloom;

Or enjoy the jewels of night,

And sacred face of the moon.

 

To watch the dying rays,

Of winter’s sinking sun;

Or hear some waking bird,

Sing and dance just for fun.

 

To shout with sudden delight,

As a ball ripples the net;

Or pocket the welcome return,

From a chancy weekend bet.

 

To experience first love,

Under a milky blue sky;

Or catching the first moment,

A baby looks in your eye.

 

To fill the quiet hour,

With a book, film or play;

Or party with dearest friends,

Till dawn the following day.

 

To witness release of a man,

And that family’s open joy;

Or see the smile of a child,

Playing his favourite toy.

 

To look from the edge of cliff,

At the angry wind-tossed sea;

Or notice star-burst streaking,

Across life’s dark mystery.

 

To feel warmth of hope renewed,

Through a morning cup of tea;

And the inner satisfaction,

Of having you close to me.
