I used to love to write for Kelly Elmore a long, long time ago. I think that when Al passed away, I tossed this to the side. You have no idea how thrilled I was when I saw her link on one of my friends, Marilyn’s, blog. I immediately had to leave a comment for Kellie. She let me know it wasn’t too late to still write for one of her prompts.

Day 14; Your definition of love
When I was a teenager, love meant all google-eyes, kisses, hugging and making out, going to the movies, or skating rink. Wow, to be that young and the entire world sitting at your feet for one day.
Today, being a Senior citizen, I look at love much different. Oh the kisses would be nice, if I could find someone to share one with. Going to a movie to see Risen, beginning this week would be a thrill. A couple of hugs could be awesome.
The bigger picture of love for me now is, companionship, trust, being treated fair, sincere love. I am asking a lot aren’t I? Well, we get a little smarter with age, and yet there is that kid in me still. So if I had a male companion, I may toss a snowball at him and watch him try to catch me and then we could both lay down in the white stuff and make snow angels. The one catch to that would be, someone trusting standing by to help us get back on our feet again.
JUST THE TWO OF US
To look out over the water
The two of us sitting on the dock
Listening to the waves and birds
Never glancing at the clock.
We would look in each others eyes
He would take my hand in his
I would place mine on top
And we’d share a little kiss.
He’d help me to my feet
I’d hand him his walking cane
He’d wrap his arm around me
And we would turn back the way we came.
He’d open my car door first
He would lean in and kiss again
He would turn the music on
And I’d nuzzle against his chin.
Yes, this is what I dream
A love for me to be
A loving friend, companion
A love so pure and free.
