ⓒPlease Color Me

Please Color me 

Sad and blue

Before there was you…

Standing there,

A smile Warm and True,

Your eyes soft 

Shiny Cobalt green,

Your body boldly

Curved in poetic preen.

My luggage loudly 

Dropped to the airport tile 

And you laughed shyly

In my wild-eyed guile.

My only thought

Was in meeting you, 

And I stumbled 

Warily to your side

Knowing not what 

I might say or do.

In front of you  

I stood and my

Voice betrayed me…

With gallantry gone, 

I pulled you to me

And kissed you 

With all the passion 

I could muster…

Stepping back from 

My hasty affront, 

Your eyes twinkled

For a moment,

As if waiting for a sign…

Then, hastily you spoke:

“Your place or mine?”

We

Have

Been

Together

Now

For

Forty 

Years,

And,

These

Days,

We

Only

Travel 

By

Rail.
