Her Taste

Copyright 2-6-2017

Steve Lake


She flows from the taste on my tongue

Sweet cherry wine her taste I dined

Years spent savoring her flavor

A connoisseur of her vintage vine


I reflect upon her uncorking

She popped to my surprise

Barely 17 and unknowing

I rise to her delight


Within my hands I molded her

Keeping her warm not to cold

Aging her properly in time

Cherishing her like she was gold


Through the years I was her expert

Knowing her desires before she would seek

Slowly I would engage her

Bringing her to her peak


From years to decades she did not spoil

Sampling her because I am loyal

Tasting my sweet cherry wine

She is calling me home to dine


Time passed to quickly it veered

Taking from my life my dear

I hunger for her taste

I linger becoming waste


Never another vine would yield

The sweetest taste of her cherry wine

Arid is my remaining days

Till my last breath her memory will never fade
