I’ve often thought of the word,
this moment in my life,
an utterance once heard
would create such a rife
in the lives of two lovers …
thoughts where pain hovers.
She walked away from him again,
I’m used to this he thought
I wonder if she might ever love when
one day could be less fraught
Oh to know just how to define
a word we need constantly refine.
I walked along the shoreline yesterday
thinking her arms could touch my own
as we together the sun rose in a way
to tell us both our love assuredly is known.
Oh how will we fight such battles beyond the mind,
the wonderment, plays love’s struggles in our mind.
