I bless the day she came my way. Her quirky hat a strange display 
meant not to impress me.

But her shadowed smile softened and I was smitten.
My face turned the flush of a rainbow red and what was written
revealed my growing infatuation.

Something about this lady, giving, loving, wanting, haunting
showing no pretension. 

Her playful wit coming from her heart would set this woman quite apart
from all others.  

What gifts were about to unfold of female attributes that made me bold
and I kissed her behind her ear. 

In later days, as she has told, she thought that I was uncontrolled 
but it still felt grand.

Her blue eyes seduced me and her hills and slopes added to my salient hopes
that somehow she would be mine.

So thank you God I cannot hide the glow within that is my pride
that this  adored sweet precious woman , has become my wife. 

And now we're in our eighth year, so let me make this really clear
I 'm still very much in love with her.

    Hi Allen: A beautiful poetic reminiscing of someone who infatuated at first meeting. I recall that a thousand years ago.

    Very nice Allan, I'm a sucker for the romantic stuff so I automatically like it, but you can feel the weight of the words and know this came from the depths of your heart. Good job! MC

    My only problem with you, Richard, is that you do not have more poems posted for me (and us) to read. I cannot really articulate how much I enjoy your work; mere words seem trite. It touches me; that's all I can say :)

    My first was 13 years. My second 25. Both died from Cancer. That is part of Remedial Living. Chava is so very special. You would like her.
