youthful remembrance

my youthful days flowed
like a river into summer,
while sweet fragrances danced on warm air,
hope carried within
a trusting vessel,
unknown to wandering expectations.

silhouettes of another
passed within reach,
connecting two souls,
an unintentional blaze
consumes both.

times change, their paths woven
with different threads,
still believing as one, again.
yet days passed,
days into nights, nights into years,
continuing on.

youthful remembrance
of soft caresses,
words spoken and unspoken,
dreams still growing
as eternal optimism,
memories kept well attended.

still strong and unyielding,
the memories still fueled
a flame,
each flame withstanding
distance and loss.

only to grow stronger
and enduring,
two souls carried onward, separate,
even when the last day
has slipped from time,
the ashes will still be
hot enough to burn.
