cannon shots out to the sky
breaking the dawn in two,
stepping out to greet the day
only us, just me and you.
Taking glances back and forth
among the crowning dawning waves
holding on to hearts of heat
counting all the lives it saves.
when we laugh or when we cry
doesn’t matter why or how
we know that in each other’s eyes
we’ll see the love we both feel now.
even lonely days of gray,
when our hearts are parted ways
we both know that in our souls
a secret heart that always stays.
one we traded long ago
when our love was hot and fresh
traded straight from lips to heart
a shock that scorched our flesh.
although the taste is bittersweet,
each touch of lips is key
to radiate the passion from
you right straight into me.
