I want to watch the Thames at sunset with you,
holding hands with you,
I want to make plans with you.
I want to see the sun,
sliding into the water,
shy of the sensation, at first,
but finding itself diving,
deep underneath the waves,
falling asleep where the bodies are buried.
I want to show you where my bodies are buried.
I want to tell you all my secrets,
in the soft light of the sunset,
hands tight together,
diving into another day,
another month with you.
I purchased a Valentine’s Day card,
because I saw it,
and I got excited at the thought of you opening it,
and remembering that to somebody,
you are as beautiful as a sunset atop a river,
a river that has seen so many love stories.
I want the river to smile at our love story,
I want you to be my Valentine,
my river that always leads me back home.
