The casual acquaintance became a casual friend, and then a friend with benefits ... and her intimacy became a lasting impression ... a memory in the heart.
Dear Conni, how are you today?
I’m thinking about you
This moment without you
And wishing you well by the way.
Fair Conni, where are you tonight?
And do you remember
The glow of the ember
That waned in our time of delight?
Darling Conni, sultry and warm,
Since ever I met you,
I could not forget you,
So enrapt was I in your charm.
Oh, pretty Conni, are you still
Alone in the starkness
Of quiet and darkness,
That only the right words can fill?
Sweet Conni, the lingering smile
That played on my heartstrings
And lifted my heart’s wings,
And lighted the intimate while.
Oh, Conni dearest, do you hear
The world stood still for us.
It did and will for us,
Should we e’er return to that tier.
