The other way around.......

More than I knew how to give was
all that you asked.......
As you teased away at the pitiful
commitment of my emotions
You just needed more ......why couldn't you
just say that......
why didn't I just know it........
My promises mean't nothing to
you then........
I knew it's meaning well........when you said....
we can be just friends........
No ....there is never such a thing
after the sweet taste of love .......
Turn and go back again?
Perhaps you've learned some lesson
that I don't even understand ......
Maybe that's why you have returned
But ......No I didn't get it then
and it's no different now........
It's just the other way around......

It's so true Freya , our appreciation of a good thing and the emotional levels only get more intense . No longer the "puppy loves" , but real and true relationships. Just wait and see . It only gets better! My dear girl! Smile.....:-]

Hauntingly sad and beautiful at the same time. As we mature it seems everything becomes more meaningful and touches us more deeply.

I read your River post just before this one and it amazes me how our lives and loves flow like a rivers path - twisting and turning, even wandering off only to return to the flow. Slightly changed and to a whole new world. I love your honesty and depth of feeling, as well as the bravery to share all you find in you. Thank you and many hugs my friend,

Laurie , Where have you been dear lady , I have missed you! I hope I said nothing to offend. :-] With all the changes around ,I though maybe the world of hubbers lost a great friend . Some times this depth of feeling is just too much , Im not sure witch came first the depth or the yearning for expressions. Thank you and its great to see you. Hugs right back.
