James WF Roberts
How can that little word,
that means so much be wasted by all of us;
for a song, for a meal, for a glass of wine,
a football team, the latest celebrity craze.
That word that rolls off the tongue.
Teeth and tongue and mouth collide, as I say I love you.
As I pledge my devotion.
But have I gone too far?
Have I said too much?
pushed the envelope too far now?
As we embrace before the dawn,
you leave before the morning…
