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!
