I Remember Love


 
I’m reminded of our first kiss
at Aire’s Diner,Tampa.
Food was cheap and I was a cheap
date for my air force man in blue.

He later asked me to marry him
in the same booth where we
played the same songs.
Bridge Over Troubled Waters
was our fav, so were the Supremes. 

I hear a song or remember
back forty-three years ago
to that time and I’m transported
to the all encompassing
 
new love we shared.  I had no clue then
how much better love would get.

It's beautiful to know that love gets better with time. I enjoyed the transformation of a young couple into an enduring romance.
