- Books, Literature, and Writing
What did I see when I met you first?
It was your smile, into which I became immersed.
You were of course, someone new, not known to me,
I sensed from the start, more than a curi-os-ity.
You wore those short tops, the long wrap-a-round skirt
Making you look taller and just a bit of a flirt
The hint of gypsy, and hippy too
It wasn’t long… before I knew.
You were exciting, quite exotic I thought.
I found myself lost, before you were caught.
A mystery, a whole world to explore,
I knew I wasn’t looking elsewhere anymore.
Your hair, in a bob, framed your perfect face,
So beautiful… had my heart running a-pace.
I could not believe you looked at me twice.
I now had a vision... of paradise.
It took some time before you granted a kiss.
You must understand, I was in ecstatic bliss.
Someone as perfect and beautiful as you giving yourself to me,
Wanting a lifetime… my partner to be.
Forty years now has passed since my first vision of you.
More perfect than ever I knew,
Your beauty, your presence, my vision surpassed.
Oh what wonderful splendor is mine till the last.
