Interlude in a coffee shop

To sip coffee with you,
Reading the newspaper,

Sitting close
Steam rises from my cup,

I relish this moment
Cherishing your smile,

Examine your face,
Lines, changes over the years

Still, I look in your eyes
And see the young man,

The hearth is still warm
And I’m thankful for that.

    I had only to read the first poem in your port to know the old Raskin is still alive and well. now to find the time to read the others. (we both share a propensity to write about the most common things don't we?) Revisit showcase won't you?

    Wonderful. And thank you for the "Letting Go" comment. Truly this poem is very heart warming. Sort of like the coffee where every morning it warms my heart.
