Here is my 'kiss.'

He looked so handsome, suave and sophisticated, diplomatic and brave
Her heart skipped several beats; her tummy somersaulted as she smelt his aftershave
He espied her, smiled, stepped forward, catching her eye, she was frozen, a statue
Forgotten feelings, emotions assailed her, as she recognised Andrew.

He took her hand, pulled her into his body, cheek against cheek
She remembered, she felt, she forgave, felt free, felt so weak
There was nothing she could do as she returned his tight embrace
She whispered to him, her voice filled with love, lightness and grace.

The steps came back to her automatically as he held her firmly
His hand in the middle of her back, fingers splayed lightly
She turned her head, first this way and then opposite
Bubbling tentacles of joy reaching up from her heart

He guided her gently towards the open French doors
The strains of the orchestra dimming as they left the dance floor
The moonlight sparkled over the veranda traversing the lake
They stopped, caught their breath, did a double take

She started to say something he hushed her with his finger tips
The lightest of touches, brushing her scarlet painted lips
She gazed into his bright blue eyes, crinkling at the edges
Again she inhaled his cologne, a sexy, masculine fragrance

Their lips joined, melded together, sweet like nectar
He’d waited so long to taste her, wanted to savour
This moment in time was theirs alone
He held her tight, releasing a guttural groan.
