Love me the way you use to
when we first made love
when passions flared
like rocketing cosmos above

run your fingers through my hair
while you make love to me
treat me like you use to
when i was all you could see

i loved the way you stared at me
when you thought i did not notice
as if i was bare
but in the mirror i caught you
as i was brushing my hair

even when you read the paper
while i sat on the couch of blue sage
again i would see you peek
around the edge of the sports page

i know you still love me
in your own way
even though you sleep in the recliner
after working all day
and i cherish this gold dipped rose
a sweet valentine touch
a gold band around my finger
shows you still love me
more than just very much

Love me like you use to
like the moonlight upon the sea
love me like you use to
when River Road was our eternity



"Silence is a friend who
will never betray."
— Confucius

*sigh* I think we forget the love and romance take effort to keep it shining and alive...If only we were willing to put in that effort more than one day a year...**big hugs**

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

The passing of time changes a lot of things.

Reminds me of a song,
~not for an hour but for always love
me truly from the start,
with every beat of your heart!~

(I'm dating myself now)  
This was very pretty Victoria~

Hm, I was thinking this recently. How someone that you were so close to, who apparently loved you so much, can be so profoundly unconcerned and even unknowing about the problems and lack of romance. Wonder how that is. Nice write, Vic.

i loved the way you stared at me
when you thought i did not notice
as if i was bare
but in the mirror i caught you
as i was brushing my hair

Its so wonderful to be starting over again...David and I still have all the romance because our marriage and our lov are stillbrand new.....but your poem reminded me a lot of my first marriage, which lasted 34 yrs.   I knew he loved me, but oftentimes, it seemed like he was taking me for granted...and I probably did the same for him.

Thanks for sharing this, Victoria
~many many hugs~
