I Remember - Poem by DAVID TERRY

I remember well the early autumn afternoon
When did we arrange our time under an early fall moon
Flirting with danger, conjuring lust
Making our plans, abandoning trust
Until at last we came as one to a place of our own
Where at last we shared our private gifts no others known
What started then lives on today in a summer’s June
I remember well that early autumn afternoon

I remember a fireplace in a January night
Sitting beside you, sipping wine in the dancing light
Flickering shadows, building desire
Touching your skin, feeling the fire
And then we retired to the place where we shared a bed
I nuzzled you close, skin to skin, thoughts of you filling my head
Afterwards, love’s afterglow when I switched off the light
I remember what started by the fire on a January night
