Coffee Cup…

30 Jun

As I sit. And sip my coffee
Over forty years gone by
I wonder how I ended up
With the most amazing guy

He sits there looking dashingly
Each line better then the next
Wondering. When our loving journey
Will finally come to rest

I wonder who will be the one
That’s forced to say goodbye
The thought of it concerns my soul
Just as I start to cry

Knowing what I’m thinking
As he’s done so many times before
He reassures we’ll be together
Haunting ever more

    Oh Sally wht does a good thing have to end? Keep the hope of true love alive and keep on living,keep on loving! I like how affectionate you are with words toward your man. We [women] need to do more of that!

    I adore this poem simply adore it — my father use to write poetry and often would write ones like this to my mother — they were very much in love their whole journey together.

    Beautiful and simple and divine.
