You and I


In its spring, our love
was so vibrant and new.
My every thought could
be traced to you.
Never could my appetite
for you be quenched.
Your love poured out like
rain until I was drenched.
A love so carefree and fun,
a love from which to never run.
Easy... No worries,  just love
for the sake of love; laughter
upon laughter, no responsibility
to think of.
In your smile, I could see
the sun rise  and my future
painted in your eyes.
Then came the summer
and it all changed.
Still as strong but priorities
No longer just me and you;
first came one then two.
Our little ones, the fruits of a love
that had become something new.
No longer carefree nor stress-free,
our love became complicated,
pulled and stretched.
No longer that picture that my
mind had sketched.
Less time together, harder times to weather.
More to love, yet less time to share,
Plenty of others for whom to  care.
Then came three, then four;
no room left in my heart for more.
So little time for each other, a love
so stretched, pulled and disfigured.
Stress filled days and nights,
tempers easily triggered.
But somehow we survived the
metamorphosis  of our love from a
passionate burning spring,
to a summer filled with an
enduring friendship that only true
love can bring.
Now that we enter into the fall
of our love, you are once again
all I think of.
The way you look at me
when we are close.
The things you whisper that
no one else knows.
Your kiss as sweet as it
was at first, so in love
I feel my heart could burst.
The future I saw painted
In your eyes, has somewhat
been revised.
Still a love eternal, that
stays warm with the coals
and embers of the past.
Fueled by a passion that
never died, always to last.
I am not sure what the winter
will bring, but I am sure of one
thing. Our love will survive
until the end because I will
always be with you, my lover
and my friend.
