It’s Best When We Do It Together

It's Best When We Do It Together

We’ve been sitting here

Together

For a while

Coffee cups in hand

Minutes tick by in

Comfortable silence

I look up

You’re smiling at me

And I know

The time is right

I nod


Just for a moment

We hesitate

You take my hand

Reassuringly

We both know

Deep down

We feel the same

It’s the right thing to do


Slowly I turn and face you

We kiss slowly

Savouring the moment

Reluctantly

We break away

In a dry husky voice

You whisper


Do you want to put on or wipe off?

You pick up the spray

I take the cloth

It’s window cleaning day

Together

Hey Movie Master, everything is better when done with a loved one, loved your poem. It put a smile on my face, which on a Monday morning is rare.

Dear Movie Master, it's a very sweet poem and I love it.

Well done. I think there is a typographical error in the first line which you have overlooked - 'We’ve been sat here'. Shouldn't the word 'sat' be 'sitting' instead? Please look into this and correct if you deem fit. Hope I haven't offended you my dear Friend.

Trust things are all O.K. at your end.

Best Wishes,

Kamalesh

Ahhh so cute..I loved this..It reminded me yesterday when my husband and I took some heavy bedding to the laundry mat together..It had been years since we used a laundry mat. We did it together and as we waited he put his arm around me, my head on his shoulder, and just watched the dryer spin, talking..simple moment but sweet..stopping long enough to do the simple things together...love this!

hugs,

Sunnie

SECRETS OF LOVE By BERNARD LEVINE

Make your love one feel special everyday.

Do not allow your lives to become routine -

prepare lots of different activities to enjoy.

Never take your loved one for granted.

Keep your love forever precious,

sacred and beautiful.

What you put into your love

is what you will get out of your love.

Enrich your lives with prayer.

Always be your partners best friend.
