In Bed, At Night, With Him

by Heide McAlister-Bates



Laugh with me.
(no, not at me - with me!)
You can change the
way I feel so readily.
I told you I was in control
of my feelings and I am
but you affect me in ways
I thought no one ever could.
So, laugh with me -
because I want you to
and
because you want to
and
because
we
can.

Sure can relate to this one. Nicely put...light reading, but with a serious side to it as well. Yes, laugh while we can, because tomorrow, things could be very different...such is that fickle creature, love.

This is LOVELY - apparently simple, yet so profound
