That’s it. there is nothing more that can be done,
For us, no wise council saying ‘ you’re the one’.
No, we took things slow playing it coy and steady,
the odd brief touch, not really that much.
inching along waiting until we both were ready.
Our eyes when they met no longer looked away
walking for miles, more grins and smiles
til we didn’t want to part at close of day.
More and more we spent time with each other
pretend fights, doorstep chat nights
with caustic comments from your tired mother.
But now we both are ready intimacy to share,
hands cupping face, a kissing embrace
as we finally begin a lover’s wild affair.
