A Forgotten Résumé...............English sonnet

The sun is sinking into seas of gold
as lovers sit and talk of used to be's
carafes of wine as stories are retold
and laughter sparkles on a dusky breeze.
A glance recalls the kiss of yesterday
how passion burned beneath her silky skin
as love revealed a forgotten résumé,
desire and hunger linger deep within.
As lovers gaze across the empty sand
to where the gentle ripples meet the shore
we stand beneath the moon while hand in hand,
embracing times we lived and loved before.
Two lovers, spirits of eternal night,
entwined in love's own infinite delight.
