After twenty two years of marriage we have the empty nest!

And you know what? We’ve discovered play!

We’ve been buying toys!

I feel his hands all over me, touching places

I’ve never let him touch since we were first married.


I could have been a better wife through the years.

Other things began to take precedence.

Being a mother is a full time job

and I took it very seriously. Perhaps too seriously.

I have been rewarded. I have raised two fine young men

who live according to the values I tried to teach.

Now they are grown and my partner has waited me out.

We have time with no interruptions.

No longer am I too tired for him.

No longer am I too selfish to try and understands his needs.

I am his fully for the first time since my first son was born;

I want to spend my days and nights pleasuring him.

We are so happy. He gives so much.

He says he is happy giving me what I need,

Which in turn makes want to give him everything.

Pinch me, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven!
