Threshold of Years

Your delicate heart
Thumps stalwartly
The tempo of our gait;
Hiking abreast
We traverse the hills
Of the state of love.

Your radiant smile,
Illuminates brightly
The journey of our love;
Whispering gently,
You reveal the path
That leads us home.

Your sentient wisdom
Discerns assuredly
Which doors to open;
Uplifting me softly,
You carry me over
The threshold of years.

Love Absolute

Love, absolute
Bears beauty in creation,
Fired in a kiln of passion.
It is formed by the hands of lovers
Like a potter’s masterpiece
Made perfect by its exquisite flaws.

Love, Absolute
Swaths us in sunbeams,
Coddles our hearts tenderly.
It is held by the arms of partners
Like a baby swaddled in blankets
And made safe in the bosom of love.

Love, Absolute
Reveals the path to wholeness
In the sum of our great parts.
It is sewn together by the minds of darlings
Like a vast puzzle once bewildering
Made complete by destiny’s union.
