Lovers In Silhouette

Who are these lovers silhouetted
Walking - hand in hand - on the skyline ?
I see them every night as the Sun sets
Never in groups just two - hand in hand.

Long ago I remember being one of them
Or rather - two of them - Pauline and I
Then Andrea and I - then Joy and I
Walking each day - hand in hand - at twilight.

That was thirty years ago when things were ....
Much less frenetic than they are today.
We had time to stop and stare and to walk
Hand in hand - in silhouette - at twilight.

But I am encouraged seeing lovers
Silhouetted and walking - hand in hand
At twilight - to believe that despite all
Romantic Love is still alive and well !

Just amazing as always.

You know what I LOVE seeing? A white haired couple kissing and carressing in public. It brings me Joy that they can still be so much in love they don't care who see's.

Once my husband and I were walking on the beach stoping on occation to kiss.

- some teens started screaming out at us, "GET A ROOM!"

I yelled back, "Great idea can we borrow yours?"

ha ha you should have seen the looks on their faces.

Amazing there is yet a mature male out there that believes strongly in Romance.

I am reading your work at random. I love it all so far. More is welcome.

Thank you for sharing.

Once aain, beautifully written. This one touched my heart. Thank you....Caithness

I like this very much very nice

Lol, sorta have a "Should have been born in an earlier century," take-me-back-in-time, "old soul" thing going for me, so. =P I find love and aging a very fragile and beautiful flower. =] People who can appreciate poetry even at a young age I'm sure can appreciate this piece of art you've written. =) Good poems are good poems - regardless of the age groups.

Aww... I love it, I really do. It;'s so sweet and amazing and powerful yet soft and caring. =)

Yes! I love it when I look a little closer and I see they are already in their 70s and still hand-in-hand lovers. Companions 'til the end.
