I Walk Into His Scent

He goes to work earlier than I go to class
After I’ve given him breakfast
And spent some time with him
I go to take my shower to get ready
When I come out….he’s gone
With a towel wrapped around me
I walk into our bedroom...
And right into the scent
That he left behind
I inhale the lingering fragrance of his cologne
Wishing I’d gotten out a bit sooner
So I could make him late for work

    Of course, I had to share that with my FB world and students....Gives me more clout, I think! It was also superb when the President of the University liked my FB post on that. :) So THANKS GALORE!

    You made me wish you had been out of the shower sooner too! Love the theme and what 'walking right into the scent' can do for the imagination.

    Yes...I'm a sensory person in every sense of the world. Scents do evoke strong emotions in me! It's just beautiful to walk into the room and be reminded that my man was JUST there. Next time...I'll hurry my shower along, and make sure I make him late...VERY LATE! ;)

    I'm feel rather sure you'll make him late for work tomorrow and the next day and the next day and...
