The poem(s) are below...




Our stolen hugs and kisses between the elevator floors
How we'd brush against each other going through the doors

When our hands would touch when reaching for the coffee pot
When we'd take a rug and sneak off to a private picnic spot

We'd leave the office for lunch at noon and not get back 'til three
Our sidelong looks and grins when there was no one 'round to see

The private little jokes we shared like a pair of silly teens
Our peers would look askance at us, wondering what it means

All the things about our office romance that started with a look
All those years ago - a look was all it took.

Now thirty years have passed, though it seems like yesterday
But I remember everything, and that look still is there today.

    What wonderful reminiscences. I remember these very things enjoyed with what was then my soon-to-be bride, our own office romance in the Planetarium I managed. We had the advantage of dark nights under the stars whenever we wanted them.

    Oh, how this refreshes memories I had quite long ago. I think I'll try a couple of these again and see if it elicits a shared smile. Thanks for writing this.

    HOW SWEET!!!!!!! That was a pretty lucky fellow Miss Wattle! These moments can happen when least expected and make a life long impact on our souls! Eerily, I had a very similar thing happened... I have never forgotten her and never will as long as I'm breathing! This was a very special poem bringing back a special time in my life... it touched me deeply! Sweet loving hugs, dear Miss Wattle xoxox
