Love to..

I felt that Valentine's Day could not go unremarked! I wrote this peom a couple of years ago. I am just reminded of how often I used to write poems to my husband, Joe. There are recipe books at home, and cards kept from previous anniversaries and celebration days with Mel's poems scrawled on the inside cover - a pastime worth reviving!

Love to hold you
Love to touch you
Gently, softly
Love to love you

Love to feel you
Warm beside me
Every contour
Love to love you

Love to hear you
Sharing whispers
Wholly tender
Love to love you

Love to taste you
Lips caressing
Lightly stirring
Love to love you

Love to watch you
Still and sleeping
Quietly dreaming
Love to love you

To be near you
To be with you
Ever always
Love to love you
