When We Met ---

When we first met, I instantly recognised you 
Not a thing in this world were remotely more true
Than the smile in your eyes 
Your warm embrace enfolded my quivering frame 
Gladly accepting the offer to take your name 
My heart shouted –  still cries 
Together we will forge an idyllic future 
All our past memories will no longer feature 
Reaching to golden highs

    Suzette a romantic poem brings back memories of our early days of youth carefree and sooooo in love. Although we're still in love after 44 years, it's a different kind of love. warm S,lies, Connie

    Second time round, this marriage is more authentic and I can verbalize it. (The previous marriage lasted 33 years but was built on shaky foundations).
