Once upon a time
in a land close to home,
when I was young and free
to wish — to dream and roam,
I came upon a girl
who took me by the hand,
and led me to a love
I’d yet to understand.
She swept my heart away
with one swipe of her broom,
then bade me follow her
to a cherished inner room.
Her innocence was wild,
my soul was not yet tame,
our hopes were altogether,
her wants and mine — the same.
We mingled nervously,
unsure of where to start,
the space between us closed
to the beat of her heart.
She looked me in the eyes,
and brought us to a kiss.
As one, we learned to know
the feel of utter bliss.
The ensuing moments flew,
though for us, Time stood still.
The magic in the room
played a tune to fit the bill.
We danced the dance of love,
we gave ourselves away.
The gain — well worth the pain
of what we lost that day.

… and, that right there, my dearest Uncle, that she is now also you … is proof … of how the two became O/One! 😉
My dear Penny, too damn funny! 🙂
How right you are ~ we’ve come so far.
Thank you for understanding. Hugz, UT

Your lady is a lucky one for such words to be written for her!!
The gain — well worth the pain- not too often you strike such balanced deals.. 😀
🙂 Thank you, Olivia! Hugz backatcha! 🙂
I love this poem, it captures the kind of innocence that is not diminished by experience. A beauty untainted by concepts of sin or judgement. This is how love and sex should be expressed in words.
Dear Cassie, your words and your review touched my heart.
Thank you so very much! I’ll never forget the morning I sat down
in a motel lobby and wrote this with the (36 years later) morning-after bliss hangover of repeating said experience 🙂 ‘Twas grander than grand!
Sweet and lovely!
Thank you, Niamh! 🙂
That was truly captivating, sweet and meaningful.
Thanks for sharing your magic, Uncle Tree…
Best wishes and happy weekend ahead, Aquileana 🙂

Well, do you know what the last word is? 🙂
“Yes!” 🙂 “No?”
You’re welcome, dear Caro. 🙂 Glad you liked. Thank you!
I’m very glad you like this innocent one, Caro. 🙂 Thank you for everything!
Especially for the tale the two of us are weaving as we speak. Luvz, Keith
I have taken the liberty of saving this, as I will forever hold this close to my heart. Regardless of where our roads have ended up, you will be in my heart forever my first love.
Thank you, for everything.
