    In another time
    …another life

    We were lovers

    Like the ocean
    Caressing the sands of its shore

    We’d be good like that.

    In another time
    A deeper, richer time

    When people did what they’d say
    And “I LOVE YOU” meant more than
    PHYSICAL INTIMACY

    I would have loved you…

    In another time
    …another place
    When word was bond
    And honor traced the steps our lives would take

    An older time

    When men stood in the presence of a lady
    And you brought flowers to dinner
    Wine…on Sundays
    And, chocolates on fun days

    You know

    The way your grandparents did it
    When they {courted}

    I would have loved you
    In that way

    When walks by the lake were all you had to do
    And a squeeze of the hand said;

    I LOVE YOU

    Yes…that time.
    You know
    Skinny dipping
    While tripping over modesty
    Trying hard to make sure
    Her eyes weren’t sipping too much of me
    {yet, hoping she did.:)}

    YEAL.

    YEAL.

    I would have loved you
    In the evening shadows
    When the flowers lost their full bloom
    I would have showered you with saucy love
    From head to toe
    Stirring the heat of you

    That’s what I’d do

    In another time.

    Most of us search for this kind of love and only few of us are blessed enough to find it. Thank you for posting these beautiful, honest words...

    in another time

    when love was forever
    and ever we'd stay
    together

    in another time

    i'd love you
    for you
    and always RESPECT you
    and stick by you
    and show you
    everyday
    what your presence means to me

    in another time.

    THANKS FOR READING ME...in this time.

    THANK YOU, my sistah
    for letting me
    breathe
    for giving me
    an opportunity
    to see...again

    THANK YOU, my sistah
    for showing a brutha
    love
    for telling me things
    i've always thought of

    THANK YOU...for reading me.
    my sistah...of the rising sun
