Our December – A Poem

Precious black and white memories
framed in rainbows of laughter,
Your smile measures in chords
Your colors surround me.
Spring’s joy in your eye
while Winter’s snowflakes
tickle our cheeks
with shivers of kisses,
And your heart sings lullabies
to my teddybear smile.
On this rocking porch swing,
Stars blink back tears and burst-
As I hear the distant flutter
of Cupid’s praying wings.

By Gretchen Leary 2002 (Oldie)


[This is one of my oldest poems from before my blog came to be but one of my favorites and I wanted it to have its own page]
