This day lives: Poem of Love

August 03, 2014 by in Blog

This day lives
Years accumulate
memories
days to remember
live for
are closer than the horizon
Greetings
within reach

Embarrassment doesn’t diminish
with age
nor does knowledge
of the world
What we want
is there as the sun rises
faced with open hearts

In age we become weathered
Sometimes beaten
Sometimes ravaged
Less or more
than others on similar journeys

In my aged heart I hold
optimism
Seasons reflect my daily moods
Chances
Desires
Hopes
Fears

In winter’s fears I know
life ends
Taking autumn’s chances I reclaim
my heart’s remaining
powers
I grasp spring’s hope
life offering more
of what is known
what is unknown
Know the truth of myself
what is comfortable
to reveal
what isn’t
In summer’s desires
embarrassments of revealing
who and what I am
why I exist
cursed for too long
melts
In my age
in one day
seasons flow and mix
Desires don’t end: they spring
awaken emotions
crack smiles
raise happiness
Nor do
fears
or hope
I’d be less than human
If they did
Nor could I admit
experience
love
if I didn’t

I love autumn
Life hiding
glories from death
in rich dark fertile earth
Chances of
new
better
life
dormant
will grow
flourish
