My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

December 5, 2010 “her kiss”

“her kiss”


the letter she wrote

is sealed with a kiss

her red lips kissed the paper

and kissed my love-sick heart

my longing eyes

have pored so often

over the loving note

that the words are worn

and the page is falling apart

but like a favorite quilt

on a cold winter night

the words comfort me

and the lips that kissed the paper

warm my lonesome heart

  3. Good God! It cannot get any more romantic or poetic than this, Tracy! Words are just a medium..and so is paper.. but those feelings, those are what really last!
