How can I describe
in the limited language of the tongue
what feelings the thought of you begins?

I think, I feel, I breathe your name,
Paula,
and deep within me
I hear beautiful bubbling laughter
like water playing over stones in a brook.

I feel the breath leave me
as remembered childish,
sun-tanned arms encircle my waist.

I sense the wetness
of a popsicle-stained kiss upon my
cheek.

And in my mind and being,
like a far - far away twinkling star,
there is such a quiet, contented serenity,
there are no words to describe it,
except love,
except Paula.
