Five Minute Friday: Memories of simple grace

This week's word: Remember

We're in the flurry of life ~ coats zipped, seat belts clicked, overnight bags are in Grandma's car.

We walk back inside momentarily dazed at our "two-ness" and stand uncertain.

then, I catch your eyes and I see him there, my 16 year old crush...

my smile creeps wide, and our old friendship falls back in.

during dinner we speak of dreams and places yet to discover,
not unlike  our days of yore when we dreamt of this life we've now built.

in the dark movie theatre I watch the movie screen play over your face,

I hope you see when you look at me,
our life's love,
 dancing with simple grace.


  1. Thanks for making me remember my sweet husband when we were young and all the moments we've shared here and there while we reared our 4 beautiful children.

  2. This is a replay of my life's moments with my man, the grandkids off, the morning light playing softly over his face, me seeing him as my new beau 34 years ago... I understand totally and LOVED it!

  3. Gosh. The way you word-smith is just breathtaking. I love this post.

  4. Very touching Tara, you certainly have a way with words, love reading your posts.
