    it’s been so sweet, these past few days
    life is crazy…and all I can think of
    after morning loving you
    is clouds in my coffee
    carly sang that "..so vain" song
    and it struck a pleasant chord

    cuz this is all about you

    the images of wisps of clouds
    those moist, lighter- than-air
    celestial bodies
    floating in my hot cup of java
    made my smile swell warm from
    the inside

    the way you make my lips
    smile whenever
    you touch me

    I want to thank you for the way
    you’ve stayed with me
    all this time
    been with me
    through all my stuff
    and your stuff
    our stuff

    in complete silence, sometimes
    you've watched me
    sift through my pendulum of emotions
    quiet, respectful,
    always what you needed to
    be to me when you needed to be
    or speaking a gentle word
    of encouragement
    or giving me strong, straight talk
    about my b.s.

    you do it so well

    you show that you know
    you are free to be
    completely you
    with me

    this love gives us wings
    babe

    I know you love me...
    and the knowing lifts me so hiiiiiiigh...
    makes me woozy
    takes me topsy-turvy
    spinning me like a mad top out of control…

    and I never want to come down

    especially cuz it's been so sweet
    these past few days

    and I swear I can taste
    clouds in my coffee
    after morning loving you

    You and Carly Simon are sisters of the heart for sure. Deep insightful women who have something to say. Thank you for this.

    Your stuff makes me just limited to the three-syllable, one word responses, Ms. A.

    "wonderful".

    this is what "it" is all about..

    and you write about it in such a meaningful way..covering the real importance of loving someone..

    I love the expression "clouds in my coffee"..the visions on hearing those words, well, may I say, are the stuff dreams are made of..
