And ways you miss me when I am away.
I don’t want to extinguish this fire,
Though it consumes my mind with desire.

I long for the moment we’ll reunite
And I'll share your kisses throughout the night. 

Song: Leaving on a Jet Plane

    Sounds like love to me! And it is one of the great songs of partting. In world WII a woman lost her husband and wrote Frank Sinatra a hit song. After you know this back ground the song will mean so much more when you hear it. It's called; "I'll Be Seeing You" So anyway dropped by to say hi Connie. Enjoyed your poem . Be happy;Michael

    Love how you made this so personal by talking about your stewardess days. Deb's theme sure did inspire you. and I see you have written lots of new poems recently. Have a good time in CA you lucky lady.

    Oh yes, I remember you telling me about those days and you have recalled them with beauty and elegance...Mary Travers is one of my all-time favorites as is this song... I posted a poem a long time ago called 'Peter, Paul and...' if you'd care to check it out...Have a wonderful day/night(?) - Tim
