"I will love you forever and a day"

"I will love you forever and a day"

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Written in 1978. Memories are like a good wine. Better with time.

"
  " I will love you forever and a day".

        
A serene and tranquil day.

She took my hand and whisper.
"My laughing American.
Life is hard.
Love can be sweet.
Wine gets better with time.
Please come with me.
Let's salvage our emotion and desire."

"Youth will be discarded.
We will be exile to adults.
Who will lose the treasures of the tender touch
and the sweet sensation of true passion."

I asks "When we lose the thrill of the dance?
Emotion and gentleness recede to children dreams.
Will only the debris of youth be left?
Will I forsake your beautiful face and memory?"

Leonard Cohen was playing softly in the small apartment.


By the light of soft burning candles.
Two shadows try to indulge in the gift of love and passion.
Trying to satisfy every sensation and emotion.

The morning light appears.
We languished into the afternoon.
Holding each other tightly.
We knew we held paradise for a moment.
When we left the room.
We would leave  our innocent and youth locks in
a sweet dream.  


We knew we entrenched two lives together.
She handed me a journal.
Told me to write down your passion and sweet dreams
in this book.
In time we will forget to love and be gentle.
Only the story and old memories will bring peace in the end.

The first page she wrote words of love.
I kissed her lips.
Thanks her for the journal.

I read the last line from her sweet words.

"I will love you forever and a day."

Author's Note

Coyote Poetry
My oldest poetry book is 32 years old. This poem came from it. A blue eye lady gave me her heart and told me to write. She told me. Don't reach for dreams. What do we really have?

'I will love you forever and a day'
Coyote Poetry,
It is encouraging to read this knowing it comes from your youth. To have been writing down thoughts and such from young adulthood is wonderful. I have started writing a little more on a daily basis in a journal. I never had before. Thankful for your lovely story and the sweetness of it's reality for you.
Blessings,
Kathy

The question I want to ask is...After she said I love you and gave you the advice, did she stay around forever to see if you accomplished it. Valentine

How beautiful .. your feelings are so sincere, so deeply remembered .. seems that that special lady has stayed with you all this time ..

She gave you wise advice, what's more, you delight so many people with your poems .. all written in your own Coyote style.
