The morning light of a new day, 
cascades through the bedroom window. 
I am alone. 
Your pillow is soft, and close by, 
it still smells of you...

I can close my eyes, 
and pray to see your...Read More

My husband's like to water, I to oil. 
We're masters of the knock-down, drag-out brawl. 
We just don't mix. I cause his blood to boil 
and he enrages me. The dude has gall!

When you marry a sweet gal
   you also marry
   her bossy sister
    and her frantic mother

You think - ha, ha!
   you'll live with your wife

My heart was pounding,
My breath catching,
I saw you sitting there,

You looked my way,
Our eyes kissed,
I was already falling,

You took me home,
You gave me roses,
The smell of your cologne,

My perfume,

Our lips met,
My mouth smiled,
I was falling,

You showed me patience,

Twenty Years Together
   By Julia Shaw
     May  2019

Two people met many years ago,
Their hearts would soon embrace,
They wouldn't let each other go,
Love could not be erased.

They married in a garden fair,
With flowers all abounding,
Their love...Read More

sure, we struggled holding strong hands at times-
wars of words hurting hearts, but never going to bed angry;
MAKING UP by MAKING LOVE - (whispers of him wanting me)
for he is my beginning that never ends....

Premium Member It's Time for a White Wedding
I think it's time for a white wedding;
For at the window, sunset's reddening!
Late in our love; we've loved long--
Deeply in love, our love is song.

I'd say it's time that we joined hands,
Exchanged bands, heeded heart's commands.
It seems to me a...Read More

the old concept
of what marriage meant:
that "made in heaven" line
had no currency back then,

many made apparently lasted

Yes, I Love You
Yes, I love you,
But not like some sniveling Juliet.

I love you more like a gambler loves the plug;
He bet his last dollar on in the third race.

Across the finish...Read More

I close my eyes to imbibe its warmth

Soak in its every beat

LOST IN FOUND
Lost in grief and sorrow
Wednesday's child found a way
To take what was given
And mold something funny to say

Laughter paved a smooth road
Sarcasm made them think
Is she happy, sad, angry
One thing for certain, she'll never sink

....to despair

Against all odds
They said it wouldn't last,
But our die we had cast.
They said I was a ass,
That I should give her a pass.

Now we are one, both of one heart,
We share the beat, never to be apart.
God brought us together,
To be one...Read More
