The morning after love
A gentle tender whisper
In the daybreak as we rose
Bagels and lox for you
Just cream cheese for me
Our favorite cafe` table
As we sipped a darkened brew

Smiles endlessly shining
Eyes singing delightfully
Dancing in their shadows
As they penetrated
My quiet composure
A somewhat pleasant stress
Washed over me
In my naivete

And I whispered
I love you...

Thanks ladies...

Lauren: I guess I am old school. I do. It's a very old memory though. :)

I won't be on much for the next couple of weeks as I am going on vacation in a couple of days and trying to get things in order before I leave.

Hi Michel,

Very feminine lines, innocent and true.

I enjoyed reading this one. I could imagine my future wife saying these lines after making love. Uhm, with your permission of course.
