The Good In Good-Bye - Poem by Kay Francis

The one good thing about our good-bye
is knowing there will be another hello.
I can close my eyes and remember
your deep sigh,
my skipped heart-beat,
the anticipation of your touch,
and these delicious memories
allow me to bear the agony
of waiting for another coveted moment
when some door will open
and you'll stand before me
wearing your little boy smile,
the one I call mine.

You'll reach out for me
and I will glide into your arms,
reveling in how good you feel,
taking delight in
the way you whisper my name
and how your body leaves no doubt
you want me.
Then your blue eyes will search
for the green lights in mine as
you bow your head
while I lift my chin
so our lips can touch
and the passion within us
can blend again.

With each new rendezvous,
we'll rediscover
the flavors of love on our skin
and together,
our ecstasy will burst,
again and again
releasing pent up needs -
desire we've held at bay,
all the days that pass between
our last good-bye
and the hello of another day.

    Wow, Kay, absolutely beautiful: the sort of poem that one reads & says 'that's exactly what I would have said had I the words'.. thank you for having the words. (Report)Reply
