At Last


I remember the first time I saw you.

Walking towards me in the heat of the day.

I remember that first conversation.

Hours of intimacy, our skin pruned and blistered from the water and sun.

I remember that feeling of connection.

Immediate ease, our bodies in unconscious rhythm.

I remember the endless days awaiting your arrival.

Airport greetings, my heart leaping and skin tingling.

I remember the soft downy covers.

Sheltered from head to toe, your heart on mine.

I remember knowing we were forever.

When just the sight of you

or the sound of your voice

or the touch of your hand

feels like the first time.

Another prompt from dear Kellie that gets to the heart of the matter. In love and in life it is always the small moments that count.

  1. This is lovely Kim! “I remember the soft downy covers.
    Sheltered from head to toe, your heart on mine.” These moments are what love is made for. Great work, as always πŸ™‚

    I agree with Colline. Your words really evoke the magic and wonder of love. The semi dream state you wrote gives your words a dreamlike power. Beautiful.
