A Spanish Affair


A Spanish Affair

Years from now
I will stare into
Someone else's face,
Some other arm will
Wrap around my shoulders,
Some different voice will
Wish me pleasant dreams.

But out of the shadow of memory
Will come the soft glow
Of a park lamp
And the hint of a breeze
From a cool Spanish night
In an autumn long past.

Years from now
On some distant October day,
The first taste of fall
Will wash over me
And I will smile and remember
The night that
Charlie kissed me.

A brand new mom trying to navigate the crazy world of mixed families, babies, and working full time. Phew! Just writing that makes me want to lie down.
