That Night Was Ours.......

Source

Upon a night like no other it was
but then ....it was as it should have been
New as anything ....the chances born for
today of a love or a friend

Leonids and perseids stars of other
worlds losing some eternal fire
They drifted by just slow enough for
us to ooh and admire

And then we retired the evening
lost to all others you and I in lust
There was no one to hear our love
sounds that we could trust

The smell of the warm grass in julys
darkness still in our visions
And the screens allowing the air to
flow through its divisions

The prize of darkness was as ours
as the touch of flesh
And we let it all go then and became one
so all might enmesh

Not another human shared our world
we were alone on this earth
Alone as alone can be ......we learned
what our love was worth

That night was ours you see
and we own it still
Tonight .....tomorrow who knows what they
bring .....another empty task to fill

That night was ours and it still is...................For Susan

....I knew it was gonna be great with a title like that - so very romantic and similar I would imagine in theme and sentiment to a new one that I have just written - Tomorrow will be wonderful - I think you and I should share a bottle of ice wine and toast all of the romantics here at Hubpages - starting with you and me - and yes it's lake erie time 8:19pm ontario canada - fall has arrived and summer is long long gone ......but I will try the water once last time on the weekend for one final swim

Ohhh that sounds cold my friend ! But not impossible . Yes if I could toast to all the beautiful hearts here , you among them, I would and could only say "Thank you all for caring , for reaching out , for touching in a new and improved way!"...Is this place amazing or what Epi?...........:-}

..yes it makes the world a much smaller place - I can literally be writing a new one while walking along the beach on pad with pen and then post it online here and within a half hour or so it's being read by someone half way across the world ...... lake erie time ontario canada 9:08pm and yes I made it uptown in time to fetch myself a bottle of red - may watch a live Kate Bush performance on dvd

Yes ! Epi man made it! ,those reds are the best , No ?I have used a digital recorder because , for me its one line or two that digs deep into my soul by surprise !I'm only glad no ones listening! or watching me write stuff down on a pad and losing it in my truck.One day they will find me slumped over my steering wheel with a pen and a bunch of lines on paper and say , "what the hell"!......
