Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge -Romance


If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”

-A.A. Milne


I thought that I would  join in with Ron and Colleen’s Writer’s quote Wednesday writing challenge this week. I love the way they have given it a bit of a revamp and now we can choose to write poetry and haiku as well as flash fiction, that means that I can have a go too.

Here is my take on romance:


I am an affectionate person

With a lot of love in my soul

I want to make you so happy

Bringing light to your life is my goal

I hate to see anyone crying

And it hurts me to see you in pain

I want to make everything better

And make sure you’re smiling again

To hold onto your hand when you’re frightened

To make sure you know that I’m there

I want to allay all your worries

And show you just how much that I care

A smile or a joke passed between us

Or the meaning behind a quick glance

The love we still have together

This old codger’s idea of romance!

  1. It is gorgeous, Sis! The love flows. I love the quote you used to get inspired. It is most beautiful. I think only someone who really found true love feels the depth of that quote.
    Btw. your book arrived😉 It is not with me yet but with my Uncle. He lives right over the border in Austria and it is cheaper to send it there to. I just wanted to let you know! 😘

  2. That’s a lovely poem Judy and more or less sums up what love is all about.I also love the A.A.Milne quote which though short is full of romance. I remember quoting it to Ju once but it seems she didn’t listen.
