Longing for cobblestone streets,
Exploring winding pathways
Pausing on timeworn steps;
Taking in the cascading bougainvillea
In stark contrast against whitewashed walls,
Red rooftops protecting history,
Blue skies in infinite perfection...
Sparkling waters surrounded by majestic peaks
Yet most poignant of all,
Hand in hand on the beach,
His green eyes filled with brightness,
Emanating that which is warm and beautiful, and welcoming,
And I fall in love again, and again.
