A Song of Love to My Ex Let me sing a song of love Seventies love that tasted of incense smoke and Hendrix Your lips were essence of wine Your odor, my heaven. Wooded walks through hanks and leaves of gingkoes And talks that lasted till dawn I lived my dream. Let me sing a song of love, innocent love. That has no stress and strain. Knows not of androids and Smart TV’s Shares clothes Plays chess and hike miles. How perfumed was the spring rain? that welcomed me to womanhood I was your gates of Heaven. Let me sing a song of love All about you, your preacher father And all those siblings that I Came to care so much, my dear heart Hand and hand with Johnstown diamond, Bliss emanating from my every pore, I lived my fantasy. Let me sing a song of love. first real love that says, I will. We came to the world each day fresh and new, like children, naked in the sun open to trees and skylight roof twigs snapping below the weight of our mass here we head for home separately. We will be hand and hand again with Jared diamond, My wildest dream, maybe your nightmare. Remember always, in spite of everything that is now, love is eternal, and only life will determine the end of the story.

Such a beautiful poem, Janis. Your title and penned words expresses what I imagine quite a few of us here at PSoup feel towards our cherished ex lover. This transcendent poem is a love classic and an instant fave. Great poem, my dear friend. Love and smiles.

Like i said to someone else, this love was innocent and pure. It's the best example I have I thought and then I thought again.....How could I neglect to write about my love story with Jesus that's been going on much longer.......janis
