The Lingering Kiss

by | Aug 2, 2017 | Love, Marriage | 0 comments

The first kiss came

in an unscripted moment,

a spontaneous expression,

a breathless surprise.

They tested the waters that day

deciding to cast off

lines of doubt and fear,

setting sail together

into the unexplored depths

of trust.

That single kiss became

chapter one

of a long novel depicting

a life of shared commitment,

always written  

with a happy end in mind.

Little did they know then

they were also kissing

the old them

the committed them

the through thick and thin them.

These old ones were found

tested and true


through all the stuff of life.

In times of sacrifice and feasting

that first press of lips

still lingered

a reminder,

an intimate taste

of what would come

if they allowed love

to lead the way.
