Remember in those early years
how you’d touch your lips to mine
while standing on the step –
how we cold-shouldered time?
There was no letting-go desire
of the embrace that held us near
No care in the world came close
in that moment to what we shared
Who knew those goodnight kisses
would carry us this distance?
(floating in a state-of-mind
of tender reminiscence)

Thank you so much!
Thanks, Ben! I always appreciate your comments and feedback!
Arrgh those doorstep kisses,, I remember a few myself.. Well written Lauren.. 😀
Ahh, Sue, it sounds like your memories weren’t good ones. 😦 Some of mine weren’t either. But the ones I choose to remember were great and I married that guy. 🙂 Many hugs, my friend!
🙂 And many hugs right back xxx 🙂
Such sweet memories you’ve shared here xx
It’s so fun looking back, Christy, and recalling these special times from those earlier days and dates. 🙂 Thank you! Hugs!
I was expecting some Halloween doorstep Hershey’s Kisses.
Ahh, sorry, Binky. Maybe next time though. I see a chocolate post on the horizon. 😊🍫
So lovely and tender, Lauren. Your poem brings back memories of dating years.
Thanks, Michelle! I was thinking about those years when we were young and just starting out. It’s hard to believe that we’re close to celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. Where does the time go? 🙂 Anyway, I’m glad you have some memories, too, and I hope they’re good ones. Have a wonderful weekend! ❤
“These stolen glances, doorstep kisses,
I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this
I don’t know what it is
Please don’t stop me
It’s no love
But it could be”
Aww, beautiful words, Mihran, and for me, those kisses were love and I’m still married to that wonderful guy. 🙂
amazing – I almost wanted to turn your words with my piano into lyrics..
Thanks so much, and that is the loveliest thought ever because I know of your wonderful talent!
wow – I just saw your elegance, amazing words, I am just speechless. I wish you a blessed Sunday:)
How sweet is romantic love…transitory though! Lovely memory. 🙂
It is very sweet, and I’m blessed to say that those memories turned into reality for me, and the same guy now 28 years later is still just as romantic. 😊 Thanks so much, Balroop, for your lovely comment. ❤️
Wow! That’s awesome! Such relationships last for seven rebirths… that is a belief! 🙂
A lovely memory. Lauren. 🙂
Thanks, Ian, and for me this became reality, for which I’m grateful. 🙂
Brought back memories, Lauren
And it has been 36 years for Lisa and me.
All good wishes,
Thanks, Eric. I love those good memories, too, and Congrats on 36 years. That’s great! We’re heading to 29 in January, but then 30 years altogether. We’ll catch up with you someday. 😉 Have a great weekend!
How I savor these words and long to feel them again. The doorstep was so magical!
I’m glad you liked this one, Don. I began thinking of when my husband and I first started dating, then this poem began, as well. Take care, and thanks for all your visits! I appreciate them very much…
