The Never Farewell

Tags: love
a reminder to speak love


She lit a candle.

Read some words.

I listened as she grieved

Private moments shared,

Wild togetherness

That would never be again.

She spoke of travels

And poetry,

Of music

And slow kitchen dances.

Tears fell for moments lost to love

Because of marriages long dead

But still binding.

She wept for the husband of her heart.

Suddenly gone.

Eulogized in her absence.

My heart mourned also

For never-love scribed in midnight dreams

For passionate yearning

And words that distance consumes.

What is a life that is ever denied

And love that sparkles like distant lightning?

So I tell you now

I love you.

Forever.

With all that I am.

That is everything.
