ENCHANTED LOVERSA Poem by Ellen Hammond
Softly glowing, fiber optic flowers,
Sensuously illuminate the room.
Romantic melodies luring lovers,
Enticed memories of our honeymoon.
Two silhouettes dancing in the shadows,
Intimately entwined though not alone,
Intensely evoked loving thoughts of you.
I even sensed a waft of your cologne.
This reservation could not be cancelled,
Wish you were with me, for our special date.
But your boss sent you out of town again.
Our last anniversary, you worked late.
You’re working hard to become a partner,
The firm has become your focus in life.
I understand. But from my perspective,
You need more time for your children and wife.
My wistful thoughts turned so melancholy,
‘Til the enthralled couple started to rise.
Still in their euphoric bliss, they stumbled.
Suddenly, I was looking into your eyes.

AboutI am a Christian with a deep faith.....but not overly religious. I believe that faith is something we share by the way we live and reach out in love to all others....NOT something for me to pre.. more..
