    I never told him
    I loved the way our bodies
    sculptured perfectly in
    slowdance across the
    bedroom floor to the
    old school sound of
    "The Commodores"

    how~

    I adored the way we'd
    lay in our essence
    after making love
    absorbing each other's words
    as our bodies glistened in
    the moonlight.

    I never told him
    I enjoyed watching him sleep
    in a peaceful dream state
    until the morning sun kissed his face.

    how~

    being enveloped in his
    strong gentle arms made
    me feel safe and secure from
    all harm.

    I never told him
    the loving stare in his
    eyes completely warmed me
    & when accompanied with
    his touch always made me melt.

    that~

    the little thoughtful things he did

    like~

    "running a bubble bath" &

    " easily making me laugh
    after a long stressful day."


    like~

    "understanding mood swings,
    taking cold showers"
    &

    "unexpected flowers"


    meant so much to me.

    I never told him
    how much I appreciated him.
    Now its too late.

    I hope she doesn't make
    that same mistake.



    Scribeaboutit! It helps.

    BUT, YOU DID...

    you told me
    in the way you returned my smile
    ...the twinkle
    the sparkle
    in your deep, brown eyes
    the care, with which
    you loved me deep
    the sorrowful stare
    whenever you'd weep
    you told me
    in so many ways
    the depth of affection
    and love you gave.

    you told me.:)

    LOVED THE FLOW.

    This is bittersweet. Brings memories and regrets to my own heart.

    Thank you.

    You're right.. these are things that need to be said in the moment- it is so easy to not say them and not even realize the mistake you're making. Thanks for sharing this.

    JAH Love.
