Poem in Response

After reading “Não Há Metades” (Portuguese, meaning “There Are No Halves”) by Carla Milho – a very talented writer, lovely lady and good friend from Lisbon, Portugal – I was inspired to write this poem…

Your magic charms
Have captured me
Now, what am I to do

You warm my heart
I can’t escape
Feelings I know are true

So far away
I want you near
Sharing time hand in hand

That we may kiss
On moonlit beach
And lay down in the sand
