For Lesley

Just something I wrote to my wife.

For Lesley


There’s a time I remember,

when the world

stood still for us.


We smiled more,

laughed out loud,

loved deeper,

felt more alive.


It was our time, our moment.

I know we can never get it back,

after all…. nothing stays the same.


I’m just glad it got better.

A tender piece of writing with a twist of humour too, Mike. I was wondering where the build-up was leading to be pleasantly surprised by the final resolution line. This is a good example of how sincerity needs simplicity, with no ambiguity or cryptic issues to distract from the messaging. My good wishes to you both.
