Yearbook Photo

Her smiling eyes meet mine through time,  
so much was gained and lost.
She’d given all she was to love  
with no thoughts of the costs.
 
The silver necklace her father gave
fell across her crystal skin.  
What he gave to her in purity  
was all she wore in sin.  
 
It must have sparkled beautifully  
in that cabin’s warming flames.
As bodies swayed that winter’s night  
and dropped all binding chains.

Staring at my yearbook photo from the spring of my senior year, I feel a little sadness at what I’d already given away so easily. Looking back through the lens of twenty-five years since that time, I wonder how one so young could have loved with such abandon. Yet, even when filtered through all my experiences in life, the college boy I met when our families were stranded together on a winter’s night is a treasured memory. This poem references back to my experience in Fire Never Extinguished.
