Four Years

printable (pdf)

Four years,
Many changes,
Affectionate love,
Indulgent sex,
And fighting too.

Ecstasy and scars.
Who knows which
Was more important.
Could it have been easier,
Or did our souls
Need the pain?

Always intense,
I truly love you.
The force of nature
Binds us together,
Secure, but
Not in our control.

Could we be as the boat
At the end of the world -
Sailing at peace,
In the face of nature's
Awesome might?
Arm in arm, lip to lip
Alive, aware
And happy?
