One winter's night

Its late Storm's still raging outside 30 inches of snow they say But we don't care Standing looking out the window You come and wrap your arms about my waist Lean your chin upon my shoulder And gaze out side with me I smile at our reflection Just me and you In the hushed silence of our living room You light the fire I pour the wine Red tonight A nice Chardonnay The little ones all tucked away Mmmmm the smell of apples and cinnamon As I walk back to the kitchen That huge apple pie we made is finally done cookin Another glass of wine, I pour Finally able to stretch out with you On the big bear rug in the middle of our floor My head on your chest And your arm around me The fire crackling merrily And all the world is hushed The night is full of promise Cuz we know its ours Your heart is mine And mine is yours I lift my head to steal a kiss "Thief," you whisper, "you shall pay for this." In your big bear grip you've captured me And attacked my senses with a million sweet kisses Laughing and giggling incoherently You inflict your punishment relentlessly Till at last you've reduced me to gasping shudders Your eyes sparkle as you get up Champion they seem to say And I agree clearly this battle was not won by me "Pie?" you ask "Mmmmmmm I’d love some," "Ice creams on the counter." I reply And as we sit indulging in the indulgent taste of homemade apple pie I look at you and I think, this is it this is all I’ve ever wanted well..... maybe battle # 2 *wink*
