Something in the Wind

Quiet now, and listen –

Hear the wind – whistle and sigh –

It’s really rather musical –

It’s sound while passing by.

Yet we are warm and comfy,

Safe from it’s beating chill,

But it is still so nice to listen,

To nature’s melodic skill.

Quiet now and listen –

With me share and delight –

The chance for some togetherness –

As we cuddle on a windy night.

Intimacy

The couple lay side by side in bed.  Though they were met at the hip, there was no other contact, nor was a word spoken.  She silently worked her sudoku, while he scanned his messages on his lap top.

“Hey Sweetie, Don and Eva emailed and want to know if we would like some visitors.”

“Tell them not today, I’m really not up to it.”

“Okay, done,” he said.  “They said let them know when you are up to it, and hope you are feeling better soon.”

“That’s sweet of them,” she said. “I really just need to be by myself today,” she said reaching out her hand and pulling him closer.

Never Truly Apart

As I watch you dying, I hold fast to

The life we still now share together

As a loving husband and wife.

You are so much frailer now

Than on the day we wed,

Yet you are just as

Sweet and lovely.

We hold hands

Happy

Still.

 

The sentiments were already running through my head, and the prompt from  Colleen M. Chesebro helped give me a structure.  I have therefore put the thoughts into a reverse etheree form.
