When The Door Opened Poem by Scarlett Treat

When The Door Opened

Rating: 5.0

I could hardly breathe,
I was so breathless with excitement!
He was finally here,
After all the long hours
I had waited - -
And waited.

As he came to me
The scent of the roses he held
Drifted toward me, soft as a baby's breath,
And as his arms enfolded me,
I felt his hand on my back.

A chill went down my spine,
For winter's breath was at the door,
So I pulled him into the room
Where the fire awaited our return.

I still don't know which brought the most heat,
The dancing firelight and warmth I had prepared,
Or the touch of his lips on mine,
And his breath upon my cheek.

I do know that I had waited forever and a day
Just for his return to my arms,
And as he touched me with his love,
I became safe and warm.

And again, with sincere thanks to Sid John Gardner, for
the inspiration for this string of pearls!

Simply delightful and delightfully simple - to borrow your own erudite phrase! The breathlessness permeates with a fresh expectancy from first line to closure... Rgds, Ivan
