Take Me Back



~~~

It had been months since I laid eyes on her

Though I saw her often in my dreams

A colorful movie of nightly memories

Her hair flowing, scented summer breeze

~~~

But there she was just, as pretty as always

And I hoped she would remember me

The last time I saw her was a sad affair

Though we had loved so desperately

~~~

I left with but a few kind words

And hibernated the winter away

In my heart, spring has returned

Seeing her again on this sunny day

~~~

I take her hand, a remembered warmth

I give great apologies as I wipe her eyes

I tell her all the sweetest words

And offer my poor alibis

~~~

It must be true love, when she smiles back

And our hearts again become one

One touch and her engine roars to life

And we ride off in the setting sun

~~~

    Lots of feeling in this one, I really like it. I get the feeling you must be a real romantic who can make the ladies swoon.

    I can take this many ways. I think you’re describing your motorcycle, but it also could be a special someone. “One touch and her engine roars to life.” Once again, it could be the bike or her heart.

  8. I love this. Especially that frog
