College Days

In the grilled window overhead
Before ringing the bell
I see your face.
It is only love, nothing else.

You rush down the stairs
You hold my hand,
Your cheeks flushed with excitement.
It is only love, nothing else.

We sit on the lawn
In cushioned wicker chairs.
The night queen exudes its scent.
It is only love, nothing else.

You smile at me,
I lean over,
The world blurs out of focus again.
It is only love, nothing else.

At the sound of the car
We hastily disengage,
You rearrange your hair.
It is only love, nothing ...

Proposal

Mon cherie, this New Year's Eve,
Let's get married,
Again.
I think the time is right for me to pop the question at last.
Yes, thank you for waiting so long.
The first time around,
I wasn't quite ready.
I was too young, too callow,
Both of us were under stress, as you know.
