Today's Writers Digest Challenge was "platonic love" and since it is Valentine's Day, I wrote a poem to the love of my life, Jose.
Roses are red, violets are blue, you know I’m going to say I love you. It started with a look, then a tender kiss, followed by passion between the sheets. Soon come the kids, and we are a family, the loving is hectic but still, ohh so sweet. Alone, we rediscover us, rekindle the flame, yesterdays sustain us as we look ahead. We sit side by side, the passion no more, our memories are blurred, we hold hands like before. Roses are red, violets are blue, and yes, you are right, I still love you.
