Favorite Quote:
A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.
Anne Roiphe

Two years have gone by
since you touched me
That Way.
You remember, I know;
Each fleeting glance
you take back to the shelf
Is worth a thousand words

I remember, also,
Your calloused hands smoothing
each of my wrinkled pages
Looks don’t matter, you said.

I saw sunlight once
in your eyes
It was my beginning
Something new,
I swear I wasn’t trying
to Lead you on

A book sale
What a way to say goodbye
I thought our memories
were worth more
than $2.99
