Our Love

Our Love

A Poem by Lisa C

Enduring love


I reach out to touch you but you move aside
you look back at me as you walk away
there’s a faraway glint in your eye
I start to follow but you suddenly stop
is there something wrong
dread freezes my heart
I glance around , scared
“what’s the matter” I begin to say

you reach out to to touch me
but I back away, fear making my heart pound
you grasp my wrist and pull me
straight into your arms
your mouth descends to mine
your lips soft and warm
you deepen our kiss
sliding and stroking
then you lift your head
your eyes dark with passion

i’m helpless now as you tug my hand
we tumble to the bed
“I love you” you whisper in my ear
as you gently caress my face
“i’ll always love you”
I close my eyes , surrendering to my feelings
my tears begin to flow

I open my eyes knowing what will be
I turn my head to look , you’re fast asleep
you let out a soft sigh
the man I remember is still here
just older, we both are
but my memories are held in my heart
our passion still there but quieter somehow
our love endures even now as our
bodies begin to age and fail
and i’m still that insecure woman
you met and loved
I smile to myself as you reach out to me
even in sleep , my eyes drift shut
as I sink peacefully into slumber
