Do You Remember?

By Beryl L Edmonds

Do you remember that Valentine’s Eve?
Soft moonlight shining through silhouette trees,
Silvery stars glistening just for us.
Do you remember being so in love?

Earth stood silently still, the world was ours,
If only for those few mystical hours.
Such tenderness in the meeting of lips,
Sharing the joys of love’s magical bliss.

Do you remember midnight chimes begin
To announce Saint Valentine’s coming in?
Intense ardour and pleasure interlaced,
Elevating us into outer space.

Hearts charged with passion, electrifying.
Sparks a-flying as nighttime was dying.
Touching, exploring, loving, adoring
Until the lovely night became morning.

Do you remember coming back to ground?
Lying quietly as heartbeats wound down,
Gentle embraces, kisses by the score,
Then slipping away to dream L’ amour.

Fervour that’s only seen in a movie.
The starring roles were yours and yours truly.
We’d found nirvana with its grace and charms,
Wrapped up perfectly in each other’s arms.

Do you remember?
