Last Christmas Together

She Talks

She

I will always remember his beautiful eyes that shined

with love and desire,

I will never forget our last Christmas together as we

made love by a roaring fire.


I can still feel his lips as they mastered mine,

Crazed---so intoxicated with love---no need

for wine.


His hands so strong pulled me into his arms,

Surrounding my body---and securing my heart

from harm.

Making Love by the Fireplace

Making Love by the Fireplace

His lips made love to my face as he kissed my eyelids, cheeks,

and neck---sparing nothing---for jealousy sake,

It made my already captured heart---quake.


His powerful arms that rippled with muscular strength,

Held me softly enfolded---time was endless within their length.


Will such loving perfection last forever?

Can one find it again? Maybe never.


Our lovemaking through the stars did climb---to Heaven’s door,

But our wet glistening bodies cried for more.


He left me---when his country called him to war,

My heart was black that day he went

away---maybe to see him no more.

My Darling’s picture is next to my heart,

I caressed and kissed it each time before I parachuted out,

My heart always gives hers a shout.


Our enemy hid in their mountain cave,

Waiting for us to come walking in---we heed danger---but we are all brave.


At night we huddle in many places,

Seeking protection from our enemies with no faces.


She never leaves my mind at night,

Her beauty outshines the brightest star---with its dazzling light.


Her long hair gleams with illuminations,

My hand craves to hold it glory---but now---only in my imagination.


Her eyes---light baby blue,

Would make the toughest man---coo.


Her lips are like those only---Angels possess,

Full, pink, sweet to the taste and a perfect shape,

could make even---our enemy confess.


Her laughter flows gently through my memory of another time,

When our love life was our prime.


Now we run and fight with ground fire and planes over head,

I am afraid we will all ---soon be dead.


I read her last letter from many months ago,

It said---My Darling Sweetheart---Our son came today

and I wanted you to know.


He looks like you with his dark eyes and black hair,

He sleeps and eats without a care.


The letter folded and neatly placed over his heart,

Tears gleam in his eyes---with great sadness his

heart is waiting only for the day---his company will depart.


Will this war ever end so we can be a family again?

I can only pray---amen.




United States of America---Our Home

America


He came home to her without a scratch,

She met him with their baby---now a year old,

Baby and Daddy a perfect match.

This love story is still going on,

Since her Darling husband came home

Their hearts and souls will never be alone.

Hi Bobbi Purves

I know I am a bit out of season but I love Christmas, so I couldn't resist this one.

I liked how you told the story from two different perspectives, just like letters. It really adds to the romance.

I am glad this time it was a happy ending.

.....I so do love how you broke this romance down into two separate points of view - she and he - a very novel idea and so creative too.

You have romance in your DNA , Bobbi, and behind these words I can see the beautiful heart of the lady author who penned them. Hubbravo to you - you are my teacher and even better you are my dear friend too. Thanks for your visit just down. You always light up my page and my Tuesday is off to a roaring start because of you.

i love this poem from both perspectives, Bobbi - it makes me both sad and mad at the same time!

I hate war, i hate the need for it, i hate the people who instigate it - and i hate the waste of life!

When will we ever, ever learn..

this incredible poem brings it all to the forefront! VERY powerful, my friend!

Thanks Bill,

What is life without romance? My Daddy always said--Life is what you make it. When I was young I never understood his many Southern Sayings---but now I understand some of them. He was a great person.

Thanks for the visit,

Your Friend,

Bobbi Purvis

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on November 30, 2012:

Hi Mark,

I hope all is well with you and yours. Life is like a roller coaster at the country fair---but I am determined to laugh and smile even if it hurts and be positive. I have six nephews and all will be home but one and I know he is coming home soon.

Take care and enjoy the "Holiday Season."

Bobbi

Barbara Purvis Hunter (author) from Florida on November 30, 2012:

Hi Lord,

I am happy to hear from you and I hope all is well in your life. Our positive spirits take us through many harsh times---but faith and prayer helps so many wives and love ones this time of year whose hubands, sons and daughters are not home during the holiday season. I pray for them all.

Your Friend, Bobbi Purvis

Joseph De Cross from New York on November 30, 2012:

What a wonderful tale that is actually happening right now. So many soldiers overseas, and wives wating day after day : Norkfolk Va, South Jersey, Miami FL, Panama city FL, Biloxi MS, and the West coast by San Diego and up north. Thanks for a romantic tale for these holidays dear friend! Love happy endings!
