The Seventeenth Sunset

those days, I wore my heart on my sleeve 
each day with you was like an eternal summer 
I counted each and every sunset 
each and every single swirl 
from the spectrum of gold 
and as I held my breath– 
the rays of the sun dancing upon your eyelids, 
so bright it almost looked like a tear– 
I fell deeper 
and deeper in love with light 
with the light that is you
