Desire

Your love touched me. . .
As a butterfly softly alights on a flower.
I didn't notice until you flew away.


*Note: This poem is about not realizing you love someone until it is too late.

Touching in a sad but wonderful way. I feel the limbo and ache of this. Beautiful expression in such few words. Love this one. David

Lovely poem, Connie. Sometimes Love is so right and touches so lightly, one really does not notice until they are gone. Well said in poetic manner. Check soup mail. Dont know if you recieved second half of my response.
