When Love Remains

May 11, 2013

 

couple walking in rain

When love remains

in youth’s retreat

in aching hands

and swollen feet

 

Laugh-lines deepen

and hips grow wide

dance steps slow with

knees modified

 

Our vision dims

and elbows snap

we sometimes wish

for mid-day naps

 

Drooping eyelids

and sagging jowl

sun-spot hands clasped

between us now

 

We walk a path

through sun and rains

each day brand new

when love remains
