The Tender Moments I Yearn for

The endless treasured talks at night
And the silent solemn promises
The winsome words to make things right
And the comforting seraphic caresses
The morning missives and the goodnight lines
The quixotic hugs and embraces
The cute little cards and the odorous nosegays
Filled with earnest and heartfelt praises
The eternal waits, the never-ending times
And the fondly glance and gazes
The trivial tiffs and the temper tantrums
The acts of mischief and rollicking phases
The long, long drives and shopping sprees
The leisurely walks along the beaches
The heavenly halo and a hand to squeeze
Are the missing elements being needed

That was awesome. Those moments were with me until a few days back, but not anymore.... So even I yearn for them now more that ever.
