Touched by your flame

I was dull and unassuming
Head down as I walked
Lifted my chin with your finger
We drank coffee and talked

Talked of silly things that gave pleasure
In our childhood and beyond
Memories that I will always treasure
Think a friend I have found

As children we sat together
In primary school were very close
Grew up drifted apart, thought forever
As a teenager felt very morose

Now I am smiling, we are together
Friends indeed, more might come about
Now I bless each day I wake up
Smile fixed on face wanting to shout

This is the flame that burns within me
Touch of our fingers and we alight
Never give up on hopes and longings
Everything will soon turn out alright.

    It's amazing the effect old or we'll say past relationships of any kind, can create such a new found pleasure. I guess they allow us to live in the past and create or renew a bond we never desired to break. Great work, I hope your new found hope gains momentum and leads to the other wishes and your longing is overcome or realized that is. My main hope is that your storms are passed. Sorry I haven't commented sooner.

    I like the metaphors, the double entendre the descriptive narratives, I even liked the coffee, that suggestive note that the flame heated the coffee, the fingering, it was all very delightful, this poem is a treasure!!!!
