Summary: In memory of my late husband who would have been celebrating our 40th anniversary

It's coming up to that time of year
when I want to hold you and feel you so near
to feel your hands upon my soul
let our love unfurl,unfold.

touch my breasts hands so warm
skin on skin
feel the sweat sleak our love
making it in heaven above.

lips on lips
breath on breath
we come together
in the aftermath.

Lovemaking finished
just for a while
till passion arises
and with a smile,
we make love again.

We never tire
we never sleep
just a passion
remained unfed.

Now alone
I never forget
this time of year
the time we wed.

A special year
we will be together
in my dreams
will make love over and over again

My wife and I read this. I had her read it after I finished it. She said it was 'beautiful'. I agree. A teacher she works with just lost her husband this past week, so we've been thinking about what would happen, what we would do. A touching, romantic, eloquent poem. Nice work.

A poignant piece. Spent the rest of last evening remembering all those who are no more.

Alice, 'I want to hold you and feel you so near
to feel your hands upon my soul'
is lovely.

Well done, as always.

Alice - very beautiful, tender, heartfelt and true. Extremely moving and uplifting in spite of the ache of sorrow.

Love & Mercy,

Mike,I know how sensual you are with your writing.
You pick up on feelings and love so easily. Must be the actor in you.

xx Alice

i thought this was a vividly moving piece of writing, such a hard subject matter - but don't the things that involve your heart always communicate the best with other people.

well done i loved it

Its good material. I think it's worth trying to get it down to five verses and finding rhyming couplets for all of them as you probably intended some day.

Good writing, I enjoyed it.
