The Eclectic Pen - I'm Back From Lunch

  (I wrote this 32 years ago to my present wife . She was keeping a scrapbook about the things we did and places we went, but she was complaining that she had nothing to put in it. We worked together but had different lunch breaks. I gave this to her after my lunch one day.)

I'm back from lunch
And I've got a hunch
That I'm still in love with you.

"Cause I was thinking
As I was drinking
That we're the perfect two.

I know with you
I'm happy,too
And have a better outlook.

I wrote you this letter
So you'd have something better
To put into your scrapbook.

Chris, That's a great poem. My husband used to leave notes for me all the time. Sometimes it was little poems other times just a note saying how much he loved me. This is a great poem for her scrapbook. I hope you find the time to make more memories like this one.
