Brigadoon, n. 1. A mysterious Scottish village
which appears for only one day every hundred
years. 2. A Lerner & Loewe musical. 3. Anything
eternal and timeless.
I reach around to softly stroke your hair.
I stare at you with lidded eyes that smolder.
You smile at me like God smiles at a prayer.
We hold that look like children hold hands walking,
Happy to be together and alive.
No promises, no questions, and no talking:
Just eyes, deep eyes, into which we both dive.
Tomorrow may be wonderful or tragic.
Tonight may disappoint or never end.
But this—this moment now—this is just magic—
A treasure we can share but never spend—
A brief and timeless breath of harmony
That sings us in its heart, and sets us free.
