Daily missive for Tuesday the 5th of May.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 5th of May.

It is not about ownership
The need to control,
Take charge
Or even to be needed.
Neither is it a fear
Of being on your own
With no-one to care
When illness strikes
Or to share
When good fortune
Comes to call
Although some things
Are best experienced
With someone else
Not just anyone will do
For the moment
To be special
It needs the person
Beside you
To be wholly special too.
It is not just the company
A wall, to bounce ideas off,
Or send them
Back and forth
Like a tennis ball.
Keeping the rally alive,
Even when it
Might be easier
To let it go
And claim the point,

That can be laughed about,
Time and time again,
Over a drink with friends,
Or alone together,
Snuggled up on the sofa
In front of the fire,
With hot chocolate,
And fondant memories.
More than this,
It is a feeling
That is hard to define,
But grows in the heart
Ripens like grapes on the vine.
It is an ache
That grows stronger
The longer she’s gone.
It is the wonder
Of knowing
She is really the one.
It is the look she gives
When walking away.
The kiss on the lips
That sends a charge
From the top of your head,
And out,
Through your tingling, finger tips.

But it is more than this.
More than lust
Or carnal desire.
It is a flame
That burns stronger
And higher,
With each passing day
Until it consumes
All of your doubt.
And you come to know
What this is all about.
It is love that you feel.
And you know
It is magically precious,
And wonderfully real.
