Missing you

I love you today
more than ever
the words you 
easily confess

and the look that says it all

and yet I miss
the tentative words 
you took your time 
to say to me long ago

the uncertainty of it all

when we first met
I was so shy
the words we simply 
could not say then

were the best of all

  2. Ninot Ma'am,
    One gets tongue-tied at the wrong time. And this is quite normal for young lovers! Nicely Ma'am!

    1. At the wrong time, indeed. But with hindsight and nostalgia - it was so charming !

  3. Oh this is so lovely. But I always hated the uncertainty part of beginnings. Best is the security of what you have Now. Love this, Ninot!

  8. What a grand love afair indeed Ninot! One that has lasted the test of time. A lovely write, and I agree with Pat finding no words can be the best thing to say. :-)

    1. I am so glad I found someone to love without reserve, Carrie. To think we could have missed out due to prejudices and old fashioned beliefs.

      Sometimes being brave is all about following your heart.

  9. I think the time when lovers first met is always the sweetest memories which stay fresh regardless of time and age. It is a great experience when the words we want to express are restrained by shyness, and once it is said, it remains so meaningful.

    I like the way you arranged the stanzas, it makes the poem so appealing.

  10. That is so true, Zunnur - about first moments. Good of you to notice the arrangement, I do pay attention to these kind of things - for pure enjoyment.
