    After much planning and telephone calling.
    Emails that cried and erasing the times you
    lied. Never really wanted to say good bye.
    You showed up when I needed you most,
    though I wasn't really dressed to act as
    a host. I hurried to dress and make my self
    presentable. Didn't want you to get the wrong
    idea...Cause I had a preacher man coming here.

    Even though I have known you for 30 years I
    couldn't help but shed some anxious , joyful
    tears. Didn't know what to do with my hands
    didn't even know what to do about our sleeping
    plans. We talked until three in the morning.
    Before I knew it we were both snoring.
    You asked for the sheets for the sofa bed.
    And lust and passion was running through my head.

    It took all I had in me not to invite you to my bed.
    I prayed and meditated instead.
    We greeted the day, like an old married couple,
    stretched out together before our walk, I see
    your body is still supple. Your strong biceps detail
    the promise of comforting hugs. I fill coffee in our
    matching mugs.

    As we walk the dog and talk and smile, I think we
    walked a country mile. We looked each other directly
    in the eyes, no more sadness , no more cries.
    I held my hand out, and you eagerly grasped it.
    I knew from that moment we were a perfect fit.
    Not just cause of what we shared, but when we
    walked by people stopped, smiled and stared.

    Eminating from a place of divine intervention.
    There were somethings that we didn't even
    have to mention. What are your intentions?
    You didn't hesitate, "If you can wait...I'd like
    to make you my wife!" I couldn't believe you
    were back in my life. I smiled and said lets
    discuss it again, when we have shared more
    time...But I was saying "YES" in the back of
    my mind.

    And all I could think of my long lost love and
    friend...
    How good I feel,
    When I finally saw you again...
