Silver Anniversary
Giardina47

Our passion was spent,
 1
you fell asleep in my arms.
 2
Each day of each year has unwound
 3
to reveal the exalted face of a shared moment.
 4
 
 
We've been nourished by acts of nourishing,
 5
our youth faded and grew in faces
 6
of children who seed the future
 7
as we are heirs of lovers long gone
 8
who live in us with love’s largess.
 9
 
 
Unlike beauty of September leaves
 10
that herald death with gorgeous colors,
 11
people still alive will be tinged with memories
 12
when our hearts have stopped.
 13
 
 
When we ride the dimensional
 14
winds to the life that follows
 15
where interconnectedness of all things
 16
is known as the breath of existence,
 17
it will be old news,
 18
something we knew when we fell in love.
