Just Happy

I love him.
I cannot remember ever being so happy so see anyone in my life.

"I am not alone," I say, though I don't mean to say it out loud, but it makes him smile a huge smile.

The air is humid and sweet, like the ocean, it seems to be alive.

"I behaved so badly," he says.

He leans over and floats the heavy bouquet beside us in the water,
then he takes my hands, but I pull my hands away so that I can hold him in my arms.

I put my arms around his neck and I can almost smell the sun on his skin as I press my lips to his ear.

"I'm so sorry," I say, "to think that I could have blamed you for anything. I know you were doing what you thought was best."

"I should have explained ..."

"Shh ... I say. "don't think of it."
It is such a strong feeling, the joy of just being with him.
He understands the joy of not being alone.

I laugh.

"What?' he asks

"Just happy," I say and step back to see him.
He looks even better now. He is perfect in this field,
breaking the line between the green shoots and the blue skies.

There was so much to say it was impossible to know where to start
so we drank of each other without speaking.

The truest moment of love that brings an abundance of happiness and a heart overwhelmed , where everything else fades and dims in comparison.
Where words lose their weight and mere presence marks the absolute unison.
Loved every word!

it's nice to say out loud (or in writing) i am "just happy." no qualifiers, good to acknowledge this happy state of being, and it's nice to read of it.

Beautiful. Moments like that make everything worthwhile. I like the line "so we drank of each other without speaking.". Sometimes so much can be known in silence :) It's nice to be happy
