How often when woo the lady, all stops are pulled, when the deed is done there is relaxation.

Keep the Romance Flame Burning

How her heart beat faster as she saw the roses
Each step she took closer, her excitement rises
The room was very saturated with their fragrance
They were red one, the ones of her preference.

Hand trembling as she reached to take up the envelope
Clearly blushing as she silently read those words he wrote
My darling, the lady who always foremost in my thoughts and dream
Honor me; by making all a reality, by become my queen.

That day, and the years after were so magical
Such caring, much considerate, supportive going that extra mile
Never failing to find time for a smile, and never forgot like a planner
Making some time to stoke the fire, having that romantic dinner.

Always they did lots of things that both could enjoy together
Studying, walking and having long talks with each other
Could this be that this was because they were still growing?
And in this process they were building as well as acquiring.

That drifting apart came quite slowly, but it was noticeable
When it was highlighted, the dismissed it as being controllable
But as the financial situation improve and there were more acquisitions
These became like the new centre of each universe, and capture that attention

There was time in that past when they were in the same room, sitting closely
Watching the same television and together unraveling a mystery
Now the house is new and is two stories, with room expansive
Flat screen televisions on the wall, more like decorative

Then so engrossed in what’s on the computer
As it become his partner after wolfing done dinner
Any attempt at conversation, will make him hurry to the study
Taking his lap-top, sending that message that there is to be no company.

That moment now spent sitting as he text on the phone
There you are in the presence of someone, but still alone
Working hard as they acquired things but seem to lose each other
That’s what happens when one get caught in the materialistic hour.

Also too when couple get marry they tend to forget romance
They seem to think that, that was all in the courting parlance
Getting security is not bad, but one my keep those forces
Trained on, keeping the union steady on all the right courses.

So true! Women love to feel cherished and be romanced, and so many men so easily forget that...Sometimes that can become the beginning of the end... Wise words my friend..
