Leaving a Love

I thought our love  
was immune to the  
natural ebbs and flows  
of earlier loves.  
But the tides of  
passion have receded and  
it’s time to walk softly away.  
Treasure the memories of us  
at our most intense.  
Be thankful for what we shared.  
We leave each other changed,  
never able to be who we were  
before our meeting.  
I'll cherish your wife's accepting smile  
and trust that she'll smile for others in the future.

It has been a few weeks in coming but my lover and I decided to seek other adventures. I'll miss him and his wife's portrait. He came into my life at an important time.
