Forever Love

I spoke words of love
I knew you could hear my voice
Your response was silent, just for now

I felt your movement
A foot sweeping, arms stretched out
You can’t reach me, just for now

It’s a feeling like no other
Loving you sight unseen
Somewhat a stranger, just for now

Sunrise and sunset, played on repeat
I feel the rhythm, timing is perfect
More pain than pleasure, just for now

Your voice, loud and clear
Tears, you can’t find me
A moment of separation, just for now

One look, one touch
Love ignited at life’s perfection
My son, my best friend, forever

My son, who grew up playing competitive soccer in the US, has admired Arsenal most of his life. At this moment, he had the opportunity to stand where they stand waiting to hit the pitch. This is a player’s perspective:
