In another life, with the fall leaves scattering
their myriad of beautiful colors before our path
The man held his wife'shand as they rode in the worn
horse drawn carriage through a gray cedar
shingled covered bridge, spanning the stream
where they first kissed

He watches the afternoon sun catching
the auburn highlights in her long curly hair
that whipped lightly in the cooling autumn breeze
causing her to cling to him for warmth
cuddling close so he could feel the puffs
of her sweet exhalations

With her by his side, he has always known
that all was possible, that he could
have children, and a warm loving house
He new that he could always count on her
to help drive away all his worries
and comfort him in times of distress

As an aging couple they still took
those carriage rides in late autumn
never foresaking the love or the friendship
that had blossomed over the passing years
beyond that which they could have hoped for
becoming one by the strength in their hearts

When we met five years ago
I loved you so strongly, so soon
that I new our love had passed on from another
from the old couple far in the past
who still hold hands while watching the brilliant
leaves tumble and float quietly to the ground



 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

JBowie~
I just found this at the back of the classroom.  
I like the romanticism.
The imagery was nice also.

Love the theme of this piece, and how you've presented it! The love you feel allowing you to see far into the past to perhaps the origins of a love so remarkably strong and true...neverending. Gives the reader pause to wonder who you will pass the gift along to when the leaves fall on the bridge for you...wonderful work.
