Ninety nine, one hundred

by Tony Young

Dare I whisper truth's,
who cares ?
it's beautifull
so real
lips melt into smiles
your breaths
so warm my shoulder
I care so much
for this life
with you.
When you reach ninety nine
I'll be one hundred

Numbers that promise a long life together - I enjoy the soft whispers, the breaths, the lips melting into smiles - the mouths bring us so close together - a lovely intimacy in this.

Beautiful Tony- just beautiful. I REALLY love your poems. This one is....sweet, romantic and filled with emotions- straight from the heart! GREAT write!

I love the unspoken promise here, that you will be there on those auspicious birthdays. To say so much without using so many words is a gift!

...tony, i'm envious of your clarity in so-few words, and one soft kiss implying a life-time of soft kisses, too much!

Tony, a fellow romantic. I love this poem. Coming from a family of long lifers I'm hoping for ninety-nine and a hundred with my love. Thanks to Joan for turning me onto to your beautiful words.

Sigh! I wish someone would write me a love poem like this! You get right to the good stuff Tony! Beautiful.

Love the positive message here, but best of all the hope. Great way to round off the first day back to work after a four day Easter Weekend. Thanks for that Tony! :o)

Warmly tender and romantic! Mutual caring, sharing, loving all implied in great supply.

Music began in my head as I read this, romance has your number, contains a wonderful ageless aroma of romance, peace n poems, jewels
