Kisses Of Long Ago (poem)

Ah those kisses long ago

Shared by the vines of young lovers

Blind to the world

In dreams infurled

With no hope at all but the next

-

Every wind set aglow

Was just another reason for a kiss

Reasons or rhyme

Some other’s time

While new ways of kissing explore

-

Kisses in trees

Kisses in windows

Kisses in picture show

Kisses in lists on and on

And each sacred spot

They never forgot

Those kisses embed their days

-

Passages drifted long ago

It came about who now knows when

As days progress

With one kiss less

Until again world was in view

-

Yet little did those lovers know

Whose maddened kisses lit their lives

Flaming their hearts

Meanings imparts

Would bear memories kissed today

I like this a lot. For the obvious reasons it brought back very sweet memories.

This brings back such wonderful memories, Martin. Those kisses that put butterflies in the belly and take your breath away. The video you chose is the perfect addition to this beautiful poem.

"Little did those lovers know . . ." Yes, the memories serve well years after. Thank for the pleasant nostalgic visions.
