You're The Only One I Want

We have that moment in our life where love comes down into one's heart the desire from deep within explodes hits one there pierces like a love dart Kathleen and Joe were so apart in real life but electronically so close the electrodes caused a real spark when the web lines smelled their nose Memories come flooding back here to days when they were no email snail mail as it's labelled nowadays the stamp took us wings to sail One year before meeting face to face Christine and I by letters to exchange so much one can learn by our pen it made us feel at home on our range You're the only one I want both our feelings did unite like Joe and Kathleen on film our love is still up in the light ( This is loosely based on the movie 'You've Got Mail' as my wife Christine and I shared same mail exchange as Joe (Tom Hanks) and Kathleen (Meg Ryan) but not email but by normal snail mail and so still together after 29 years. )

Your lovely poem is wonderfully expressed, Gordon. Letter writing (especially love letters) is such an intimate form of communication. It’s so nice to hear of your 29 years together. Congratulations on your wonderful recognition with POTD honors. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
