..bottle of wine almost empty.
music playing in the background
and i'm sitting on my sofa, alone.
thinking about you.

it's been a while.  a long while since i've done it.


don't know what triggered it.  just did.

you're everywhere.

if i close my eyes i see you.

hear your laughter

picture you, smiling at me

our conversations that lasted into the wee hours of the morning

your touch


making love



words, so many left unsaid...

i take in the last drop of wine.

savoring it.

breathing it.

almost as if you are here.

tomorrow all will be normal again.

but just for tonight,

just for a little bit,

i'm going to let my mind and my heart, have their way.

Robin- Yes,this is true. It's nice to revisit sometimes.

Robyn- Aww, thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoy it.

Red- Totally agree. I revisit from time to time, but never stay too long. Not healthy for me.

YRJ- Very true. I believe that time does heal all wounds, as cliche as that sounds. It really does.
