when I come home
she's waiting there
the kitchen where she roams

Beautiful smells
at once me tells
a joy for mouth and nose

After we dine
we sip some wine
I spy her lovely pose

Grant her a kiss
I cannot miss
from head down to her toes

She spills her pears
but I don't care
it only stains her clothes

from far away
I watch her play
seductive littlr game

It's all the same
but not the same
gets better than before

and who's to blame
what she became
it's never been a chore

she gives to me
a cup of tea
but really it's a door

into her heart
and now I start
to turn the key some more

She dissapproves
of many moves
only on the outside

yet still she shows
how her heart glows
how she enjoys the ride

Her eyes they say
I loved this day
don't try to stop the tide

of love


Adagio

Hey Ralph...

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this--I still think you should have waited to post this, though. I like the simple sincerity of your tribute to Leah, but I think this would work better with some "tweaking".

Just come back over and we'll give it a go, k?

I'll even clean my desk.

See you soon?

Lovely write. I'm sorry I missed this one when it was first posted.
Lovely Leah, be at peace wherever you are.
Ralph,
Heartfelt condolences for your terrible loss.

I'm an idiot.

This is a beautiful poem.

(And I just told Ralph I would never critique him again.)

My only excuse is that Ralph knows more about love and appreciation than I.

(and thank you Kacy... )
