                                One sweet wish

Was a Austin, Texas hot Summer night. Pretty women wearing shorts and tank-tops in the country club. The music was good and the drink was cheap till 11 pm. I loved the Texas girls. They asked you to dance and talked with the Texas sweet voice making you wish and hope.

Sweet Sophia, A college student requested a dance to some Willie Nelson song. She asked me as we Texas two-stepped. “Where you been Johnnie. Missed you lately. You been deployed or something?”  I told her. A free trip to the Middle East. President Clinton send us to babysit a border. She just smiled and she held be closer.

She looked sad and kissed my cheeks and lips. She told me. “I had war. I hate that the USA send soldiers to places that hate us. My father lost a leg in Vietnam and a brother. Damn wars won’t end, will they Johnnie?

I told her. Life is hard. Hard to say what is right or wrong. I wish I knew the answer why we must kill each other for land and oil. She gave me a weak smile and she asked. “Write me a poem dear Poet.”

One sweet kiss
I asked, but for one sweet kiss.
A wish for one gentle kiss from a sweet Angel as you.
You tell me. I’m such a fool to wish for a kiss.
Kisses are free when the moment is right.

I maybe a fool to request  a kiss from a sweet lady as you’,
but you have taught me to dance, to laugh and to love life again.
You are my Texas sweet honey and sweet dream in dark places.
Dear Sophia. Last kiss make the new kissed sweeter.
Your kisses I missed and when I hold you close.
I need a million more my love.

She smiled and laughed. She told me. “You northern boys are dangerous. Make a girl want to dance and fall into lover’s embrace. Thank you Johnnie for the poetry and let’s dance to Willie and pray you don’t leave me again.
