Do You Think Of Me?

Do you think of me
in the early morning?
When the sunlight warms your face
and the wind caresses your ear,
do you feel the flush
I put upon your cheeks
and my heated breaths
as I whispered your name?

Do you think of me
throughout the day as you work?
When your fingers stroke
the smoothness of your keyboard,
do you recall the silkiness
of my skin
or the way we touched
each other
with our words
when our hands were unable to reach
across the distance between us?

Do you think of me
and remember
how every line
became a tender caress;
how each word
became a breath,
an embrace,
a kiss
as we made love
in syllables
and time stood still?

Do you think of me
in the still of the night
as you lay alone
and dream of better days?
Do my hands, once more,
sail the contours of your body
leaving you breathless in their wake?
Can you feel my gentle caresses,
even now,
as I reach out to you
from the depths of my dreams?

And as the memories
crash like waves,
their shores the recesses
of my battered heart and mind,
I canít help but wonder...

After all this time,
do you think of me?




†Have you ever noticed
That the words...
"Goodbye"
"I'm sorry"
"I love you"
Are so easy to pronounce
...Yet so hard to say
~Javan

Very nice!  I liked the line:
"the recesses of my battered heart and mind".
  where shattered memories can be found, I think.
Hope the week goes well for you!

Be still this heart, Ruth-
beautiful expression here
with a very good question...
"Do you ever think of me?"
I liked this one a bunch.

A poem from the heart can't help but be beautiful, especially when that heart is yours, Hoot

None are wiser than the Owl,
One who speaks from the heart,
Your wisdom,your kindness
And all that you give,
Make`s you,truely a work of ART.

Well written piece Owl

where I can breathe...

I don't think you need to worry, Ruth. If there is one word to describe you it is....unforgettable. Beautiful writing.

Hoot~
Beautiful, you know.
And I would hazard a guess that
yes, he does.

Do I think of you???  I do now!!!! - lol - this is truly a sensuous, romantic poem.  Man!  I wish I had written this.  But, then, if I had written it, ol' Rex wouldn't be in the shower right now, would he?
