You and Me

Remember the way we used to laugh and talk for hours on end? It didn't take us very long to be the best of friends. So exciting just to have each others company. I miss that you and me. Remember when we started to finish the things each other would say? An understanding rare and deep to know someone that way. Easily, we led each other's eyes to see. I miss that you and me. It sure seems like these days we have less to talk about. I know you still love me, in my mind there is no doubt. It just don't seem like anything's the way it used to be. I miss that you and me. Sometimes, getting ready for bed, you watch me brush my hair. Pretending not to notice, I take pleasure in your stare. Is this the night your passion reaches out to me? I miss that you and me. I don't believe in fairytales, so someday I expect, the time will come in life when love just turns into respect. Candlelight and romance just a faded memory. I'll miss that you and me If memories are all I have to keep me warm at night, the ones I have are just enough to carry on my plight. In your arms is where I truly want to be. I miss that you and me. I need that you and me. The way we used to be. -Jeannie Minor

Thank you, John. My goal, like everyone's I guess, is to make the reader feel something. Sometimes you find yourself going places you wouldn't ordinarily go to get the emotional depth you were after.

once again I join you on the dance floor and move into an old rhythm and a tune still used in country dancing. The words say it all and especially say it for those left behind. Thank you wordancer

Jeannie, there can be more loneliness in that kind of relationship... than one in which you live alone. Memories of 'the way it used to be' sometimes makes it worse because love is literally still within reach. 7 ;)

Too many to count. Good thing is we use our feathers as quills...no fear of running out.

Oh my gosh....Not only do I sometimes have to force myself to turn off the light, but I get up and write something down, knowing if I don't, come morning it'll be lost to me. The result is insomnia..;) but when we get something we love..you're right...worth the missed sleep.

Thank you, Lin. The late night writes are so much more worth the sacrifice of sleep when you get a comment like that! Knowing the connection was made is everything!
