One winter's night

Its late
Storm's still raging outside
30 inches of snow they say
But we don't care
Standing looking out the window
You come and wrap your arms about my waist
Lean your chin upon my shoulder
And gaze out side with me
I smile at our reflection
Just me and you
In the hushed silence of our living room
You light the fire
I pour the wine
Red tonight
A nice Chardonnay
The little ones all tucked away
Mmmmm the smell of apples and cinnamon
As I walk back to the kitchen
That huge apple pie we made is finally done cookin
Another glass of wine, I pour
Finally able to stretch out with you
On the big bear rug in the middle of our floor
My head on your chest
And your arm around me
The fire crackling merrily
And all the world is hushed
The night is full of promise
Cuz we know its ours
Your heart is mine
And mine is yours
I lift my head to steal a kiss
"Thief," you whisper, "you shall pay for this."
In your big bear grip you've captured me
And attacked my senses with a million sweet kisses
Laughing and giggling incoherently
You inflict your punishment relentlessly
Till at last you've reduced me to gasping shudders
Your eyes sparkle as you get up
Champion they seem to say
And I agree clearly this battle was not won by me
"Pie?" you ask
"Mmmmmmm I’d love some,"
"Ice creams on the counter." I reply
And as we sit indulging in the indulgent taste of homemade apple pie
I look at you and I think, this is it this is all I’ve ever wanted
well..... maybe battle # 2 *wink*
