The elder poet

She covers me like a breath from the ocean.

A love that has lasted through out the years .

Seldom touching, Only wanting . And expressing.

Sharing the laughter. Only this was hiding all the tears .


A chance to hold her close to me .

Just to touch her warmth of flesh with mine.

I held her once or twice too closely.

Sharing kisses and caresses for a time.


So many years have passed now for these lovers .

When at first sight it began. 

An angels smile that caught me off guard. 

And the twinkle of her eye's . They did demand .


She's still an angel in my mind to this day .

Though these days we may have seemed to change.

My love for her is there forever. 

Forever and a day. Still.
