    when we were love
    we didn't notice the
    passing of day into night
    and a country mile wasn't
    a walk long enough for all the
    things we had to share;
    everything we had to say

    we when were love
    each morning was another
    opportunity to make each other
    smile, a new way

    when we were love
    no one could tell us
    there would ever be a day
    we'd struggle to
    remember how we used to
    laugh till we cried
    & how we used to play

    when we were love

    begging

    pardon....those who know my pet peeve about spelling and proper use of the language (the insufferable English teacher in me)...the term 'matricide' means the killing of one's mother...I, however meant it another way...

    I hope I didn't upset anyone with the title...:)

    *Heartbeat, thank you for your thoughtfulness. :)

    angelic wisdom...

    no one can hold that special place, created by the friend, lover, wife, mother of children...that space molded, fashioned, and irreplaceable, at my side.

    I love reading you Ms. A. I always look forward to feeling through your poetry, what's on your heart & mind. :)

    Thank you
