Night Moods

It was one of those nights.

Let’s Make Love was the tune we were listening to.

Baby I’ve been drifting away
Dreaming all day
Of holding you
Touching you
The only thing I want to do
Is be with you
As close to you
As I can be……

Our chat was simple and calm as we began to relax.  We were both tired after a day that started early with plans being interrupted or changed time after time for each of us.  The music was our era and it only took three or four minutes of that first number for the stresses of the day to fade to oblivion.  We were as comfortable together as an old pair of gloves.

The tempo changed with the next song Island In The Stream sung by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton

Baby, when I met you
There was peace unknown
I set out to get you
With a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on…………..

Toes began tapping, well it is one of those numbers where it is impossible to stay still.  Without a word we were dancing across the floor.  Islands in the stream is what we were, no one in between, yet not touching.  Not touching in the flesh, but locked together in an invisible chemistry or animal magnetism…

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha……..

As the song faded we embraced.  Locked in our own world we hardly notice the music and artists change.

This was a special favourite: I Finally Found Someone – a duet with Bryan Adams and Barbra Streisand.

I finally found someone, who knocks me off my feet
I finally found the one, who makes me feel complete
We started over coffee, we started out as friends
It’s funny how from simple things, the best things begin

This time we moved as one, living every nuance and word.

This time it’s different (dah dah dah dah)
It’s all because of you (dah dah dah dah)
It’s better than it’s ever been
Cause we can talk it through
My favorite line was “Can I call you sometime?”
It’s all you had to say to take my breath away……..

Suddenly I felt him freeze on the spot.  Over my shoulder he had a full view through the picture window, that ran from ceiling to floor and wall to wall, of what went on outside.   Living in a cul-de-sac it was difficult not to be aware of the normal comings and goings of the other residents.

Today a hearse had just driven up slowly and stopped right outside the window!!!  The undertaker approached the door…

Thankfully he was at the wrong address and he was not coming for either of us, but it kinda killed the moment.

We stood there.

We looked deeply into each others soul and realised how fortunate we were.  The next piece began and with it, two great big tears rolled slowly down my face.

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers – Barbra Streisand & Neil Diamond

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs

You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day…

I remember when you couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after loving me late at night

When it’s good for you, babe
And you’re feeling all right

When you just roll over and turn out the light…
And you don’t bring me flowers anymore…………

But used-to-bes don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor
Till we sweep them away……..
So you think I could learn how to tell you goodbye

So you think I could learn how to tell you goodbye
You don’t bring me flowers any more…

I hope you never need to learn how to tell someone goodbye!
