    I never thanked you
    Not in ways that matter
    I imagine you now, and
    I can't see why you'd give
    me a moment's thought
    in your memory

    And I do believe after all
    this time I feel the pain
    and the guilt, and the
    hurt from never really
    expressing my gratitude

    Oh, yes, there were those
    times in my bed
    when things were said
    But you knew my mind
    was lost between
    your thighs

    Those pretty brown legs
    make a man say anything

    So I did...
    I said anything to make you do...
    everything
    even before I knew there was
    really nothing I could say to make
    you love me that way

    I was a juvenile
    acting on raw lust and greed
    taking all your sweetness
    and **** it, if I never even
    said how beautiful you were
    the way you gave yourself to me

    (you possess the most glorious nest
    so much more about you exceeds the rest)

    Late as I am, my reflection
    brings me to a point in life
    when I refuse to regret
    and before my advancing years
    cause me to forget

    let me just say

    "Thank you"

    Bert

    took me a moment to get here; and I had no idea how beautiful a "thank you" could be.

    thank you for sharing.

    ...some things are just wonderful to hear no
    matter when the other person finds the time
    or inclination to say them... this "thank you"
    is one of those things...

    beautiful-ly done! thanks for sharing...

    itsallLove, chile.
