In This Afterglow

from Something Beautiful by Color Theory



Sitting on a porch swing
Looking out across New Haven Bay
An eastern seaboard sunset
Decorates a warm September day
We must look so old-fashioned
I never thought that I’d end up this way
Happy to surrender
Marry you again and again
Linger in the flow
In this afterglow

Dusty shoebox photos
Document my history with you
When the shutter opens up
The lens takes in the world around you too
My heart is like a camera
In love with all the world through loving you
The feeling overwhelms me
Waiting for our favorite song
On the radio
In this afterglow

Now the night has fallen
The fireflies in dazzling disarray
I begin to lose myself
In the glow of nature’s fireworks display
All at once it hits me
Marriage is the afterglow of two committed lives
A growing promise that surrounds us in its light
Sometimes this ever after
Is bigger than my heart can contain
Let it overflow
In this afterglow.
