you smiled

blackeyedsusan

You smiled
And I understood
The way the breeze folds the sheets
Hanging in the sunshine to dry
The sand ripples after the wind
Has rolled over the beach during summer rain
The faint smell of lavender and rose
When I walk through the garden
The rustle of music through night air
As I walk home
The click and whirr of the clock
On the living room wall
The way morning catches my breath
And heartbeat at once with the sunrise
The way and everything that trails behind,
I understood
When you smiled.
