Unfinished Business


The earth stood still,

as back in time I traced,

to memories of first seeing your face.

Our love did not arrive in a rush,

instead quietly smouldered,

not needing or giving too much.

I knew you were different,

sheer completeness was felt.

Simple satisfaction,

not awkward or intense.

Each moment with you,

was like astounding bliss.

Time being frozen, as gently we kissed.

We made passionate love,

throughout the night,

falling asleep together,

with no need for respite.

Those memories cannot be erased,

this love affair simply must be replayed.
