The cycle repeats
faster now, as I age,
the years spin by
tumbling one after
the other. Today’s
snow, the same
last year, really
has it been so long?
Ten years I have
loved you and yet
the first kiss feels
as yesterday. What
then becomes of us,
the days, the hours,
minutes, all I savor,
knowing til death
do us part and once
thinking that seemed
such distant horizon.

Today, I walked
to the seawall. Stood
as the snow fell and
the wind blew sheets
of brine and salt, the
ragged sea tumbling
toward me, I just watched.
I saw compared to this
we are as nothing,
mere minutiae, attempting
our small acts of heroism,
of love. I see now
that to love but one
and for a life-time
is the true act – these
are the real heroes.
Those who see how
brief a life and seek
to fill but one, to love,
to be loved. Those
who see the hard
return of days as they
come year after
year, too fast now.
I am not done
loving you. Love,
I’m not ready yet.
