LOVE

Goodlifer: LOVE

I hear you coming,
footsteps that echo from the hall
I wait patiently
The floor creaks your arrival
warning me and reminding me
I expect soon you will cover
me with kisses
a precious string of pearls
standing in the doorway
your silhouette carved black into
the yellow glow
the aurora borealis caresses
your shoulders
If I could save this moment
this piece of time
I love you now
I feign sleep
you step towards me
and turn out the light.

About

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
